Syracuse Opera (NY, USA) has announced the cancellation of the remainder of its 2023-2024 season. The statement says: « While our recent productions have been artistically excellent and impactful, like many opera companies across the country, ticket sales have been considerably lower than projected, and we do not have the financial ability to continue the season. » The company explains: « The COVID-19 pandemic had an extremely significant impact on Syracuse Opera’s audience and donor base. While ticket sales at Syracuse Opera have been steadily increasing since we returned to live performance in 2021, sales are still down 40-60% from where they were in the beginning of 2020. Additionally, given the economic climate and uncertainty in our world, grant support, sponsorship, and donations are all in jeopardy with no real promise of a return to pre-pandemic giving levels. »
