    Default NY City opera cancels rehearsals as Steel battles unions



    New York City Opera Cancels Rehearsals as Steel Battles Unions - Businessweek
    The artistic director and general manager of New York City Opera told unionized singers and musicians that he wants the flexibility to present nontraditional works, giving them less work. That demand contributed to a collapse in labor talks and a lockout of artists a month before the company’s first 2012 performance.
    The company on Sunday announced a lockout affecting 47 musicians and a few dozen choristers, stage managers, directors, assistant directors and soloists. Mediation that began on Dec. 19 by the Federal Mediation & Conciliation Service ended Saturday at about 9 p.m. without an agreement. Members of the American Guild of Musical Artists and Local 802 of the American Federation of Musicians had earlier voted to authorize a strike.
    (We theatre).
    Good luck to them!
