ここには、設問の該当部分の本文と設問・選択肢を掲載します。

第6問 次の文章を読み、下の問い(A・B)に答えよ。なお、文章の左にある(1)〜(6)はパラグラフ(段落)の番号を表している。(2016)

(3) However, in recent years, opera has been facing serious challenges. The causes of some of these are beyond its control. One current challenge to opera is economic. The current world economic slowdown has meant that less money is available for cultural institutions and artists. This shortage of money raises the broader question of how much should be paid to support opera singers and other artists. Society seems to accept the large salaries paid to business managers and the multi-million-dollar contracts given to sports athletes. [But what about opera singers?] Somehow, people have the idea that artists can be creative only if they suffer in poverty, but this is unrealistic: If artists, including opera singers, lack the support they need, valuable talent is wasted.

(4) Not only the shortage of money, but also the way money is managed in the opera world has led to hardships. Principal singers are generally paid performance fees once they complete a show. They typically receive nothing during the many weeks of rehearsal before a show starts. To prepare for a role, they must pay the costs of lessons and coaching sessions. If they become ill or cancel their performance, they lose their performance fee. The insecurity of this system puts the future of opera at risk.

問3 According to paragraph (3) and (4), which statement is true? [ 49 ]
{1} Opera singers are financially unstable.
{2} Opera singers ask only the wealthy to attend.
{3} Opera singers get paid before the show.
{4} Opera singers perform better if they are poor.
