This one has me nearly in tears--a commenter wrote in and the Times confirmed it: This is the Amato Opera's final season. The Bowery building has been sold.
If you have never been, go now. It's a wonderful place. And with its location on Varvatos-Chase Way, it will probably be demolished this summer for a luxury finger building. Whatever replaces it, this is a major loss to the city and the Lower East Side.
