Moderators, if this is too speculative please delete.

Just my thought on it.

The Wang has also become a target in the national dance world, where ballet leaders have criticized the decision and the way the Wang operates. They question the center's priorities and its top administrator, Spaulding, who despite two years of losses is paid $536,159 a year, more than almost any other nonprofit performing arts center head in the country. Michael Kaiser, the president of the John F. Kennedy Center for Performing Arts -- which has a $120 million budget, 10 times larger than the Wang's -- makes $548,113.
Over a half a million dollars. I would not exactly consider him a CEO of a major corporation.
Had no idea an administrator of a large performing arts center made that kind of money, given what many performing artists make such as ballet dancers and orchestra musicians.

I also wonder how they will handle different sets for two different venues -- although it's good they already know now that they need to plan for that.

The Globe editorial and article give credit to Broadway in Boston/Clear Channel for working to provide Nutcracker a new home, so maybe they will redeem themselves. Meanwhile, I look forward to seeing what the "special edition" Nutcracker will be like, and to seeing the renovated Opera House. The Colonial has also been renovated, in 90's, so both theaters should be nice venues.
Am glad that crisis has been resolved and we can think instead of the programs Boston Ballet will be presenting in mid-March.

Bringing in the Christmas spectacular will help Boston's Nutz in the long run, making Boston a christmas destination for out of town tourists. NYC is the unofficial Christmas Capital of the world, and the Radio City spectacular helps a great deal.
