UPDATE: “City Opera’s board voted Thursday to start bankruptcy proceedings next week and wind down the company’s affairs if it fails to raise $7 million by Monday…. If no one steps in to save the company, its current production of Mark-Anthony Turnage’s Anna Nicole… could be City Opera’s final performance.” [New York Times]

  • whatever says:

    there are two kinds of bankruptcy: liquidation and reorganization. (technically, that’s an over-simplification, but practically it’s fine.) do we know which kind is contemplated here?

    “If no one steps in to save the company, its current production of Mark-Anthony Turnage’s Anna Nicole… could be City Opera’s final performance.”

    Fitting, considering the boobs and twats that run City Opera.

    Mortier must have some pretty spiffy attorneys to have his dismissal in Spain cancelled this week.

    • oedipe says:

      Well, sort of. He doesn’t get his job back, but he becomes a consultant to Matabosch. It looks like a reasonable compromise.

      • oedipe says:

        In other, related, news: Roger Guasch, the General Manager of Aliança (Allianz) Barcelona, is apparently slated to become the new GM of the Liceu.

  • bjamcob says:

    Met. Opera = Apple.& City Opera = Blackberry.
    Anna Nicole, how ironic.

    I will always treasure going to City Opera back in the 70s.
