The European non-profit model differs from the American model in many ways: non-profits are funded from different sources, general directors and executives report to different authorities and are assigned by different authorities, tax exemption works in different ways and administration education differs in its concepts. All of these matters affect the decision-making process, general strategy and repertory (artistic) policy. Irina will talk about the Russian theatrical system (based on the example of the Bolshoi theater and Moscow Art Theater) and compare it to the US theatrical system (based on the example of the Metropolitan Opera and the American Repertory Theater). She will also cover her experience of starting a for-profit agency in New York serving to a non-profit mission.
