I had season tickets for 9 years but did not subscribe this year. Why? Some performances were superb - others were mediocre. The ticket price did not justify inconsistent performances season after season.
Yes, many of the problems may have been decreasing subscribers and donors but I think that Mr. Campbell has to take a large part of the responsibility. While he (and his wife) enjoyed large salaries (did he also get a golden parachute?) I believe that he did not take the opera company into the 21st century. Perhaps as others have complained - he just got tired and lost his spark?
I would like to see that before the book is closed on the San Diego Opera that someone (?KPBS, U-T) consider doing an in-depth look at the opera's finances and how the money from subscribers and donors was spent.
