New York City Opera needs $7 million by the end of September and $20 million by the end of the year, or the company will cancel most of this season and all of next season, according to a report in the NY Times.
They are soliciting donations on their web site and....there is a Kickstarter campaign as well, to raise the first million. It has reached the grand sum of $4,433 as of right now.
Folks, you need a new development department. There are dozens of rich people out there who could bail you out by writing a single check. Where, for example, is David H. Koch? Didn't he donate a few bucks to renovate your theater?
