State Of The Arts In San Diego

The San Diego Reader has just published an article on the state of the arts in San Diego. The article is worth a read to know what we and our fellow organizations are going through.

It begins:

"In early September, Ian Campbell, general director and artistic director of San Diego Opera, was in London to discuss a possible coproduction with the prestigious Royal Opera, known as Covent Garden. He then went on the continent. 'When I came back through London about two weeks later, the economic shoe had dropped, and I told them we could not continue discussions, and that was that,' says Campbell."

Wonder what opera the Royal Opera House is commissioning these days?

Bummer.

You can read the article here and blame the sub-prime mortgage lenders next time you see them.
