Seattle Arts Groups Back In Balance

“Although the past two years were economically difficult for Seattle arts groups, including the biggest and richest, the proverbial corner seems to have been turned for some. Pacific Northwest Ballet not only balanced its $16.3 million budget this fiscal year but eliminated its 2-year-old $1.2 million accumulated deficit and restored its cash reserve fund of $580,000… The Seattle Symphony Orchestra ‘expects’ to balance its $20.9 million budget, and Seattle Opera is ‘cautiously optimistic’ that it will do the same with a budget of $20.7 million.”
