No Expansion for the Wheeler Opera House

ASPEN (AP) – A study has determined a proposed expansion of the Wheeler Opera House  is not feasible. The study commissioned by the city of Aspen concluded the Wheeler project would be too costly and cause unacceptable interference with programming. The report says the financial and operational risks along with the impact on local goodwill outweigh the possible benefits of the $30 million development to the Aspen arts community.
