Quick Takes

In Baltimore, the fat lady has sung

March 14, 2009|Associated Press

The Baltimore Opera Company's board of trustees has voted to seek Chapter 7 liquidation and sell off the 58-year-old company's costumes, scenery and other assets.

General Manager M. Kevin Wixted says the company didn't have enough money to do more than struggle month to month. He said the company would never get ahead and could never raise enough money to have one season of opera.

Three months ago, the opera canceled its 2008-09 season and filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.
