Some of the interesting points from the article regard NYC Opera's new hall:

New York City Opera "is contractually bound to occupy the State Theater, or guarantee occupancy, until 2014....studies by Lincoln Center had shown that a new opera house would be economically feasible and that the opera's obligations to the State Theater could be assumed by other bookings."

What "other bookings" could assume the slots left by NYCO? Will ABT move in to the State Theater?

The article also mention the possible sites for the new houses. With objection from the Met, Damrosch Park is essentially being ruled out as the possible site.
