Bloomberg News’ arts site has a funny (and sad to say fair) take down of the NYCO fiasco. Yes, George Steele was a mistake, but somebody did hire him and stand by him.
But to end as a two-bit touring company expiring in the wake of a pathetic Kickstarter campaign really stretches my suspenders of disbelief.
That’s what happened after George Steel, the over-parted general director, extracted the company from Lincoln Center before securing another stage. City Opera began rolling through the boroughs like clown Canio and his tragic retinue.
