About That Darned Economy...

The Sword of Damocles seems to have gotten a bit sharper overnight as reports this morning are coming in about financial woes from various opera houses.

New York City Opera, which has canceled most of its season while it renovates the New York State Theatre, told some employees to take two days off last week as it was afraid it would not be able to make payroll reports The New York Times.

Michigan Opera Theatre has canceled its spring production of Pagliacci and laid off staff in response to the economic downturn. "For the next two years, we have to be very careful and economical," commented General Director David DiChiera.

I'm afraid I'll have more posts like these as time goes on. Hey, at least we post pictures of puppies and kittens here on Fridays.
