STAGE TUBE: Can the San Diego Opera be Saved?

April 10
3:53 2014

The San Diego Opera board of directors voted 33-to-1 to close its doors after more than three years of falling ticket sales and wavering donor support.

Check out the video below!

KUSI reports that Ian Campbell said, "We don't owe any money. We've had 29 consecutive years of balanced budgets, but the board is very responsible and so is the financial staff. Looking forward, we don't see the money to support next season and, therefore, are not going to take subscription money that we can't give back and we've decided to close with dignity."

The board will be forced to sell the assets, including the Scenic Shop in Logan Heights, sets, costumes and more.
The board has said as of April 29th, the San Diego Opera will be formally dissolved. Read the report from KUSI here.
