200 people from all trades of the National Opera of Paris and the Comédie-Française gathered for a concert against the pension reform on Saturday January 18.
The Trojan March by Berlioz performed on the forecourt of the Opéra Garnier in Paris on Saturday January 18. In the middle of the afternoon, 200 people, artists and stagehands, organized this concert to mark once again their opposition to the pension reform project. “We are very quickly broken. Me at 35, it’s been four seasons that I can not finish. And I’m only 35, so 60 is already a good age to leave. It’s already complicated to lead a career to its end so to add another four years, that seems inconceivable to me ”, testifies Émilie Belaud, violinist.
Historic strike for the Opéra Garnier
In a month and a half, more than 60 shows had to be canceled. Already more than 14 million euros of loss have been recorded. A very dense crowd came to support the fight of the employees of the National Opera of Paris. This historic strike threatens to continue.
