Theater stagehands and other workers at three Philadelphia venues ended a daylong strike Saturday, announcing a one-week cooling-off period to allow for more talks and for Sunday events _ including a production of the opera "Carmen" _ to go on as planned.
Thor Steingraber, senior vice president of the Kimmel Center, said officials were very pleased that the opera could go on as scheduled.
"We're looking forward to resuming talks next week," he said. "This is an important crossroads for the Kimmel Center and for all arts organizations in Philadelphia."
