Outlook Dim.

New York -- Metropolitan Opera Coloratura Soprano Roberta Peters stops at the Met's stage exit, apparently pondering the outcome of efforts to keep the Opera from closing for the season. The 78-year-old Metropolitan Opera Association announced August 7th that it had cancelled the 1961-1962 season because it cannot meet the wage demands of its orchestra. New York's Mayor Robert F. Wagner is considering action to prevent the cancellation. (1961)
