Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre Dumps Live Music For Recordings

Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre, struggling to cut costs, has decided to ditch live music and use recordings, to save $500,000 this fall. “This isn’t something we like to do. You want to have a ballet company in Pittsburgh? This is what needs to be done. Just because you’re an arts organization doesn’t mean you can’t make a business decision. You have to live within your means.”
