New York: The board of the financially troubled New York City Opera voted Friday to move out of its home at Lincoln Center, cut staff across the board and scale back its performance schedule as it fights for its survival.Friday`s move comes as the 68-year-old organization deals with a dwindling endowment, a multimillion-dollar deficit, and contentious negotiations with its union staff.George Steel, the general manager and artistic director of the opera, told The Associated Press on Friday that "the sacrifice will be shared from top to bottom in the company." Steel said the board`s actions will allow for further growth and he said he felt encouraged by the decision. He said an announcement on a new home would be made in weeks.
