Cessarono gli spasmi del dolore?

A highly-placed source for Opera Orchestra of New York has expressed the hope that all is not quite lost for the company. In an email sent to a long-time supporter of OONY this morning, the source concedes “big problems because of the dramatic drop in box office” and admits the board is “hard pressed to make up the difference.” OONY is is “sure of one opera next year,” we are told, but they are “not sure about the other two evenings.” The source further suggested that very strong ticket sales for the upcoming L’arlesiana might rescue the 2007-08 season.

UPDATE: An OONY spokesperson confirms that the company has scheduled Bellini’s La sonnambula (featuring the well-received tenor Dimitry Korchak from this year’s Dom Sebastian) for February 27, 2008 and promises that further plans will be announced “very shortly.” Meanwhile, La Cieca has heard that one possible event for OONY’s next year would be a gala concert headed by Marcello Giordani and Aprile Millo.
