Fine Arts Deathwatch: New York City Opera Tells Employees to Stay Home


The one time when being told by your boss to take a few days off is not a good thing: When your company is worried about making pay roll thanks to a shortened season and reduced ticket sales.

Incoming general manager and artistic director GERARD MORTIER better hope that CHARLES WUORINEN’s upcoming BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN opera is ready to go well before 2013.

I’m just curious, does anyone out there know what he’s getting paid for his role at “the people’s opera”? [NYT]
