Cuts at the Arizona Opera


Another one bites the dust?

From the 6/15/2009 Arizona Business Journal:

Arizona Opera is slashing costs as it moves to keep its full slate of productions for the 2009-2010 season, officials said.

To bring expenses in line with anticipated income, several senior positions have been consolidated, staff layoffs and furloughs were implemented, salaries have been reduced across the board and the overall budget was restructured.

In addition, Debra Harrison, general manager; Lisa Bury, senior director of development; and Roberto Mauro, senior director of artistic operations, have left the organization.
