OPERA HAMILTON CAN'T CONTINUE

Opera Hamilton is falling silent.

The company still owes money from its season-opening production of Verdi’s Falstaff. The musicians haven’t been paid and the bill for the orchestra alone is $20,000.

The payroll is also behind for company staff.

Executive Director Stephen Bye says a large donation has been promised. He’s hoping it will come in this week so that he can pay off the musicians. That would allow them to play at a gala for the company this weekend.

Opera Hamilton is carrying a debt of more than half a million dollars.
