You can indicate very specifically what your estate can be spent on. For example, you can determine that your estate will be spent on the creation of new (modern or classical) operas and ballets, costumes or sets, talent development of young singers or dancers, or educational programs aimed at inspiring new audiences.

Exemption from inheritance tax
