SAVE SAN DIEGO OPERA

SAN DIEGO OPERA MAKES MUSIC WORTH SAVING! 

We are shocked and dismayed by the sudden decision of the San Diego Opera 
Board of Directors to shut the company's doors.  The board believes that a decline in recent attendance indicates that the people of San Diego no longer want world class opera in their hometown.  The decision was made without any public forum and without looking into other solutions to keep San Diego Opera alive, even as the company has no debt!  This decision will result in the following:
 
1. Loss of hundreds of good middle class jobs and careers in the entertainment industry.
2. Closure of San Diego's third largest cultural institution and tenth largest opera company in America.
3. Decline in musical exposure for San Diego schools, students, and residents at large. 
4. Decrease in revenue for surrounding small businesses, hotels, and restaurants.
 
DON'T FOLD, REVOTE!

We have until April 13, 2014 to convince the board to reverse the decision and keep San Diego Opera alive, but we need your help! Let's prove to the board that the people of San Diego: 

 


1. Believe San Diego Opera makes music worth saving.

2. Have interest in attending an opera in the 2015 season. 

3. Regard San Diego Opera as an important San Diego cultural institution.

4. Want an opera company more representative of the community, even if it means changes in leadership and direction.

Update #32 years ago
URGENT:The Opera’s new Board and leadership has opened an Escrow Account to raise $1 million from the community by May 19. Now, you who are over 21,000 strong can keep the Opera alive by giving what you can at http://www.sdopera.com. Imagine-if each of you gave $100, you could provide the Opera with $2 million and the confidence that the community is truly behind the Company. Your gift will be returned (minus $8 bank fee) if $1 million is not raised and a 2015 season is not announced. THANK YOU!
