Le Management des Opéras : Comparaisons Internationales (French translation)

This book presents the results of an international and comparative study on the problems opera houses and companies face in managing an established and historic art form in a modern business environment. Some paradoxical results emerge: large auditoriums are the most often filled; their occupation rate is not dependent on ticket prices. Other results are consistent with intuition and existing theories: the effects of scale, training and Baumol’s law are at work.
