George Steel On Trying To Save NY City Opera: "It Almost Worked!"
"When I arrived in 2009, the ... $30 million budget included $16 million of income that just wasn't there. There really wasn't enough money to do five operas at Lincoln Center. So we had two options: Close, or do something radical to save the company. And it almost worked! It gave us two more full seasons and two balanced budgets. Our first season away from Lincoln Center we sold every ticket to every show."
