As you may know, the board of San Diego Opera recently voted to close the company at the end of this season. This is despite the fact that the company is in the black financially. This closure makes no sense. The company is not out of money and is certainly not in danger of bankruptcy, so why throw in the towel?
San Diego Opera is one of San Diego’s top three arts organizations, and is one of the top ten opera companies in the U.S. Local, national, and even international figures [critics, artists, producers, etc] are decrying this action.
They are trying to get the Board to reverse their vote, but time is of the essence [the end of the season is just two weeks away]. Please lend your support by taking a few minutes right now to sign the Petition to Save San Diego Opera. We all deserve to enjoy Art in all it’s magnificent forms, be it Opera, Ballet, Art, Symphony or Poetry.
And NO, you won’t be asked to donate ANY money.
They also have a new Facebook group that I invite you to join, called Save San Diego Opera.
