NEW YORK (AP) — New York City Opera will return to its roots at New York City Center next March after a 48-year absence, splitting the 2012-13 season between its former home and the Brooklyn Academy of Music.

After fleeing Lincoln Center last summer because of deteriorated finances, City Opera used three venues this season: BAM, John Jay College and El Museo del Barrio.

Like this season, 2012-13 will consist of an abbreviated schedule of 16 performances of four operas. Next season includes new stagings of Thomas Ades' "Powder Her Face" from Feb. 15-23 and Britten's "The Turn of the Screw" from Feb. 24 to March 2) at BAM; and Rossini's "Mose in Egitto (Moses in Egypt)" from April 14 to 20 and Offenbach's "La Perichole" from April 21 to 27 at City Center.
