Holy fuck balls! Change has come.
On the heals of its image redesign, New York City Opera has unbelievably announced (although the link to the press release doesn’t appear to work) that the State Theater is getting…aisles in the orchestra!!! And Peter Martins is cool with it!
I don’t know how long the dispute between NYCO and the New York City Ballet has been waged, but at last it seems they’ve come to a logical and long awaited solution.
Two “side aisles” will be added to the orchestra level, making it more convenient for audiences to get to their seats, but preserving the center section for ideal Balanchine viewing. Also, new seats will be installed.
For those of you who’ve had to shimmy past twenty pairs of knees only to get locked into the middle of the orchestra with not hope of escape should you either A. hate the production, or B. catch a sudden case of IBS, you can probably already feel the relief.
You’re welcome again. (See Step 10)
