12. That's sad
Opera has gotten to be a very expensive proposition in New York. I go to the Metropolitan Opera and I have to bleeding out of my eyes to decide not to go because it's just too expensive to decide "eh, I'm too tired". All the arts are suffering right now. Empty seats were virtually unheard of until around 5 years ago. I hope they can make this work - there are certainly plenty of theatres in NYC for them to put productions in.
