I infer that NYCB attendance declined, or at best was flat.

I got the letter too.
I used to worry endlessly about the attendance figures at SPAC. Rumors would fly around: we won't have NYCB any more, we're getting cut back to two weeks, this is IT....these rumors were rampant for a few years after SPAC did lose NYC Opera. (Regarding your other post, NYCO didn't really find a large audience base here, but there was a small and extremely loyal one).
Were you coming to SPAC in the glory days of four weeks? The last such season was 1977 I believe--we moved to Saratoga in 1978 so we just missed it.
There haven't been too many rumors lately. I've been going to the ballet in the city more often for the last few years and I see lots of empty seats:mad: at the State Theater too.
I'd like nothing better than to see a body in every seat at every performance. But you know our SPAC theater is over 5,000 seats. It is twice the size of the State Theater. And you know the view from those partial vision seats is nothing to write home about. So on most nights and all matinees when the entire center is full I think we're doing all right. I'd like to be doing better, but it is OK.
