That's good new for Dallas (where I used to live), but as you say a loss for New York. Broadly speaking this reminds me of the appointment of Gérard Mortier to run the New York City Opera: in both cases, what the men have become known for doing will probably not be what they'll do in their new posts. George Steel will be programming for a much bigger house in a city without such a large and varied audience as New York's. Mortier, similarly, will have to address audience tastes that aren't what he's used to. I hope that both of them manage to push the envelope.
