As an end to the global economic slump remains nowhere in sight, New York City arts organizations struggling to pay their rent are now engaged in a giant game of – no pun intended – musical chairs.

The New York City Opera’s recent announcement that it will leave its longtime digs at Lincoln Center’s David H. Koch theater sent shock waves through the international arts community. Some asked, what will become of City Opera? Of Koch Theater? Of culture itself?

City Opera’s plans to perform in various venues have left some leery of the company’s wayfaring ways. But according to the New York Times, the Paul Taylor Dance Company has signed on to move its performances to the Koch, while leaving its longtime stomping ground, City Center, holding the hot potato.

As for what will become of culture itself, that remains to be seen. I’ll let you know when I hear anything.
