On Sept. 8th I posted about the financial difficulties that have befallen The New York City Opera.
Despite a well publicized Kickstarter campaign it appears the opera company is going to fall well short of the $1 million they set as a goal for the month of September if they were to have any chance of surviving the 2013 - 2014 season.
New York City's second largest opera company is expected to file for bankruptcy this week after only receiving less than $250,000 in pledges. The innovative opera company says they have raised $1.5 million outside of Kickstarter but that is not nearly enough.
If the 70 year old City Opera fails it will leave New York City with only one opera company, something thought unthinkable only a few years ago.
