This, to me, is so, so, sad, and the “Fat Persons” sing on and on – without a notes, tunes, and vision!!!
I have to wonder out loud what the BIG $$$$ donors to the renovation of the State Theater are thinking now that the New York City Opera is moving out of the renovated theater?
For a nano opera second, just suppose that this is a clever “tactic” to get the Mayor of New York City to help out with rental costs for the New York City Opera to stay at the renovated State Theater…I wonder????
And yes, opera can and is be performed, successfully, at a variety of venues all over the world; (not just in the Big Apple, either).
Perhaps the wizards at New York City Opera might contemplate the first ever “Virtual Opera Company” in the USA. I am up for talking to them about this forward thinking idea.
