Update: Teatro Zinzanni announced this week it will give its final performance in the Queen Anne location on Sunday, March 5th. The dinner/cabaret theater has been actively seeking a new location in central Seattle.
Zinzanni founder and director Norm Langill wrote a letter to supporters this week to break the news of the temporary closure.
Seattle Opera declined an offer of $8 million dollars from the developer who's buying the land; an Opera spokeswoman says work on its new headquarters must begin this spring so the Opera staff can move in before the lease on its current offices expires in 2018.
Seattle Opera will move ahead with the sale of property it owns on lower Queen Anne hill.
That means long-time tenant Teatro Zinzanni will have to leave the square block.
