'Generous' Contracts Could Be San Diego Opera’s Biggest Liability

In their recent article about the demise of the San Diego Opera, KPBS exposed some truly disturbing realities plaguing the cultural life of our city. We were simply stunned to read about the level of executive compensation packages at the San Diego Opera—ostensibly a “nonprofit” organization that sadly lost sight of its true mission. As we learn where donated funds were really going, we also begin to understand how misguided practices like these have sucked the air out of classical music in San Diego. It is simply time for the arrival of inspired fresh organizations to rejuvenate classical music, open it to larger audiences, and propel its artistic quality to new heights.
