Curtain Falls on Amato Opera

Posted at 2:24 PM on May 20, 2009 by Rex Levang

For quite a while, walkers in New York City could see an echt-NYC juxtaposition on the Bowery: CBGB, the cradle of punk, next to the Amato Opera, a mom-and-pop company (literally) with a tiny stage, and budget, but an unquestioned commitment to opera.

CBGB has been gone for a few years (though with a continuing online existence). Now Amato Opera is closing its doors as well; Ray Suarez has an appreciation.
