Delighted that our new trade deal with Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein will allow musicians, performers... 

Free producers have been saved, but some more than others; self-employed people seem especially solidary.

The amount in question is €27 million, for a total of 251 producers, so an average of a tonne per application. With that... 

Wopke in Thialf or Laura in Frascati. Who will explain the difference to me?

L'Orfeo: this wonderful performance deserves to tour internationally!
