The Triumphant Return of George Steel

Well, that was really f'n quick...

From the New York Times:

City Opera Names Steel as General Manager

The tottering New York City Opera said on Wednesday that it had found a savior after two years of financial and leadership turmoil, appointing the impresario and conductor George R. Steel as its general manager and artistic director.


His hiring came as a blow to the smaller and less prestigious Dallas Opera, where he had just started as general director in October. The company is to move into the glamorous new Winspear Opera House next fall.

“It’s the opportunity of a lifetime,” Mr. Steel said in explaining his jump to City Opera.

It was a touch obvious that this was going to happen.

Congratulations, George!
