      Too, too sad and this just shows how tough times are, right now. I thought for sure, this project would get fully funded. When so many people do not even have money for food, we will continue to see these types of iconic pieces of our culture forced to do this. Not to be negative, but this is what is going on and we have to help it change for the better.

      Everyone is reeling, but no one seems to have an in with rich people. $1 million isn't so much. Where was Bloomberg in all this? Where was former Mayor Giuliani, for that matter, whom I heard speak at NYCO a decade ago? A real tragedy.

      This Kickstarter campaign should be advertised all over the City Opera Thrift Shop on East 23rd Street, but it's not mentioned anywhere there. Publicize this campaign there ASAP, and you'll get more backers!

      Hi everyone. This is a video I made to support New York City Opera's fundraising efforts. It tells you a little about how much their education program has meant to my school and my students. Check it out, and be generous!
