La Scala Ballet Strike: Dancers Back Down, But Chorus Forces Cancellation
The corps de ballet members who were demanding hazard pay for performing on a stage with a 10-degree rake withdrew their strike threat at the last minute, but the choristers - who insist on extra money for memorizing their music and moving in time (the way they do for opera) - continued their walkout, forcing cancellation of the ballet season's opening night.
