Pappano leaves Covent Garden with a final 30% pay rise

Scrutiny of the ROH accounts for the year ending August 27, 2023 shows that the outgoing music director, Sir Antonio Pappano, earned just under £940,000 in 12 months, one-third up on the previous year.

Some of this bonus was accounted to an increased number of performances that he conducted as schedules filled up after Covid.

The chief executive Alex Beard was paid £343,000.

Kevin O’Hare, director of the Royal Ballet, was paid £262,174.

Oliver Mears, director of the Royal Opera, earned £232,842.

Revenues shot up to £170.7m, from £128.9m in 2021-22.

The company employed 1,129 staff.
