Did you catch this YNN item about Tri-Cities Opera earlier this month? (YNN is Your News Now, the Time Warner 24-hour news channel.)
BINGHAMTON, N.Y. — Changes could be coming to Binghamton’s Tri-Cities Opera.
The opera company has been a local fixture for more than 60 years and announced its lineup for next season just a couple weeks ago. But a source with close ties to Tri-Cities tells YNN the opera company is now dealing with fiscal difficulties. The source says a number of options are being considered. Some may involve personnel.
We contacted General Manager Reed Smith. He says the Opera’s board is looking at some changes, but declined to get into specifics. Smith said any announcements about decisions made would come in June. He added the Opera’s next season will go on as planned.
Tri-Cities Opera runs an artist training program and holds several full-scale productions each season.
