Opera Is Dead, Opera Stuff for Sale

11.22.13 Kyle Petreycik

The now bankrupt New York City Opera will be auctioning off all of their remaining assets on December 12th in an online sale that’s currently being billed as a “Last Chance to Own a Piece of Opera History.”

The organization gained permission to sell off each of these remaining assets earlier this week from a bankruptcy judge that stated that it was “in the best interests of the debtor, its estate and creditors.” So if you’re looking to do some last minute Christmas shopping this year be sure to buy up all of the organization’s remaining instruments, props, and one-of-a-kind costumes because they certainly won’t be using them.  (Image: Robb Report)
