The 85-year-old founder of Opera of San Jose is recovering at the hospital after being involved in a car accident Friday, the opera’s publicist said today.
Irene Dalis, whose birthday party with nearly 250 guests on Oct. 15 was chronicled in the Mercury News, suffered a broken leg, but is “still feisty as ever,” said Virginia Perry, the opera’s director of marketing and development. “She’s giving out directives and telling people not to send flowers or condolences, but send donations to the opera instead.”

… and isn’t that just like Miss Dalis?! I knew she’d suggest donations! (I even told a friend that very thing.)

I had received this news yesterday, but didn’t feel it appropriate to post it on my blog. Now that it’s in the Mercury News, though, I figure it’s out there for the world to see in any case.
