The Financing of Opera in London in the 1730’s

Number of Pages 7

This 7 page paper looks at the financing of opera in London during the early 18th century and whether or not opera was self financing. The way opera was financed is discussed, focusing on Heidegger and Handel and the second Royal Academy of Music, but also discussing the Opera of the Nobility and fringe opera. The paper also considers the way in which profits would have been distributed and performers paid. The bibliography cites four sources.
