Meanwhile, in structural news

Despite a very optimistic article in last week's NYT (which now looks rather odd -- all quotes being from one side), New York City Opera's plan to move across Amsterdam Avenue (the back side of Lincoln Center) is apparently toast.

On the one hand, it would be nice to have a somewhat smaller, built-for-opera hall in the city. (Though who knows if they wouldn't still continue to use sound sweetener.) On the other hand, it's hard to see how going from 2750 to 1800 seats would have meant anything but price increases all around...

Absolutely no axe-grinding, please.
