US opera company cancels the rest of its seasonmain
The opera company of Eugene, Oregon, struggling with accumulated debt, has scrapped the rest of its season. It will hold town hall meeting to see what the public really want and whether they can sustain an opera season.
The two operas cancelled are West Side Story and Peter Brook’s adaptation of Carmen.
The current deficit has not been disclosed. It was last estimated at $90,000. The company has been producing opera for 40 years.
