Singing at the Met (or not)

Lincoln Center Plaza in Winter 

Having survived (thank you very much) the demise of New York City Opera with a modicum of grace, I've found recent news regarding contract negotiations at the Metropolitan Opera somewhat disconcerting if only because, well.....it sounds all too familiar. While I don't have a dog in the fight, my sympathies and concerns are with my colleagues who—you will not be surprised to learn—work harder than god. The thing is: it's very hard to sing your heart out when your boss wants to cut it out. One recent article by Case Arts Law puts the matter in perspective, which can see a nose being cut off to spite a face, and we're not talking Shostakovich. More bad news from Slipped Disc here.
