Opera strike called off

Choristers
at the English National Opera (ENO) have called off threatened strike action
after coming to an agreement with managers.

In
the deal, around one-sixth of the choir members will take voluntary redundancy,
leaving a permanent chorus of 50.

The
singers staged strike action last month after ENO bosses threatened to make a
third of them redundant.

A
second strike, scheduled to coincide with the UK première of The Handmaid’s
Tale on 3 April, has now been cancelled.
