I just read on Twitter that Eugene Opera is taking “a breather”.
I do hope it’s not a last gasp.
This is the thing: the arts are struggling in the United States. Now, with someone cutting funding in nearly every way he can, they will struggle more.
Give when you can. Give more than you have in the past. Attend concerts. Attend operas. Attend the ballet. Go to your local museums. Support the arts. And write. Let the government know you care about such things.
