Mortier Leaves NYCO

It seems the relationship between Gerard Mortier and NYCO is over before it really began.

The New York Times is reporting Mortier has resigned from his post at NYCO citing an insufficient budget to produce the meaningful slate of productions he set out to do. It seems the financial crisis has taken another toll, although this one is merely stunned and not dead.

The Company is also making changes to next season's repertoire. The homeless Company was performing an abridged season while its theatre was undergoing renovation. Renovation continues and NYCO will return, but this news could not have come at a worse time. But it is not a suprise as there had been chatter for some time now that the honeymoon period was over.
