Opéra Bastille, Paris

The Opéra National de Paris has cancelled yesterday’s performance of Rossini’s Il Barbiere di Siviglia at the Opéra Bastille due to a strike by some of the Opera’s staff, according to the company’s official website.

This was the production’s premiere, and the next performance is scheduled for January 14. The cast includes Xabier Anduaga, Lisette Oropesa, Carlo Lepore, and Florian Sempey and Ilya Kutyukhin alternating in the role of Figaro. Carlo Montanaro is set conduct the production by Damiano Michieletto.

The strike against the French government pension reform has caused many cancellations since the beginning of the month of December 2019.
