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?

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

      • 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:

    Anna Nicole, how ironic.

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