New York City Opera Reaches Agreement with Singers Union

By PlaybillArts Staff
22 Aug 2009

City Opera has reached an agreement on a new collective bargaining contract with the American Guild of Musical Artists, essentially ending any possibility of a strike that might have threatened the upcoming season.

The union represents City Opera's principal singers, regular chorus, associate chorus, stage directors, assistant directors, stage managers and dancers.

The new two-year agreement follows the adoption in June 2009 of a new contract between City Opera and Local 802 of the American Federation of Musicians, which represents the members of the New York City Opera Orchestra.

Louis Perry, a long-time member of New York City Opera Regular Chorus, a national officer of the union and an ex officio member of City Opera's Board, said, "Many artists who work at City Opera have dedicated their professional careers and much of their lives to the company. The shared goal of New York City Opera's management and the union and its members was to assure City Opera's well being. We took the steps necessary to achieve that goal."
