The death of the San Diego Opera, after 49 years of world-class performances, is a shocking and tragic loss for San Diego. It is also a bit of a mystery.

Ian D. Campbell, the opera company’s highly respected CEO and general and artistic director, said the company has been well managed for three decades. It has no debt.

So, why shut down with a sudden and operatically dramatic announcement?

“The whole idea is to exit with dignity,” Campbell told editors and a music critic at U-T San Diego. “Exiting with dignity is critical to us. This city doesn’t need a bankrupt opera company.”

Here’s the LA Times article.

I don’t see anything at their website about this.

Just another worrisome thing, I guess. I pray that Opera San José doesn’t experience the same fate. Support your groups, people! Please!
