New York City Opera's recent production of Anna Nicole at the Brooklyn Academy of Music raised a few eyebrows last month, as any opera about the late supermodel Anna Nicole Smith should. It may also have been City Opera's final act. The 70-year old company announced this week that it will dissolve and declare Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

Writer Fred Plotkin joins us to reflect on City Opera's demise, the subject of his recent column for WQXR's Operavore.
