City Opera locks out its orchestra and chorusmain
In what may be approaching the final act for New York’s desperate City Opera, the management have announced that members of the orchestra and chorus will be barred from the premises on Monday after their failure to agree a new wage deal on Saturday night.
So City Opera is from this week a company without orchestra or chorus, let alone any money to carry on because a careless board has blown the endowment.
What kind of opera company is that? A dead parrot.
