City Opera Cut Out of Ground Zero Plans

“The municipal corporation overseeing the redevelopment of ground zero has determined that there is no place at the site for an opera house, a decision that all but dashes the New York City Opera’s hopes of moving there from Lincoln Center.” However, there appears to be some confusion as to whether City Opera has been officially informed of this development. City officials swear they contacted the company last week, but NYCO’s director insists that, as far as he’s concerned, a move to the site is still very much on the table.
