“Pledged since yesterday: $935.”
Shocking, sad, senseless killing of a major American arts organization by a hapless board and clueless director. Leaving Lincoln Center was stupid. Why? NYCO is spending 12 million to produce a handful of performances, when it used to spend 31 to produce 122. Any fool and do the math. They aren’t saving a dime by not being at Lincoln Center. In fact, they are paying a hell of a lot more to be putting on shows in two theaters. Someone didn’t crunch the numbers.

Thanks for those, QPF. The labeling on the Nilsson clip is a bit misleading. She fell and dislocated her shoulder during a rehearsal, not during a performance. There was daily speculation if she would be well enough to sing the premiere of what was then the new “Götterdämmerung” (the last installment of the von Karajan “Ring”). Trooper that she was, the show did go on, but only with her costume modified to mask her arm in a sling. When she came up out of that cave/hole/whatever to sing “Zu neuen Taten,” the entire house burst into wild applause from the moment she appeared, obliterating the music until her first notes. I was there.
