SAN DIEGO OPERA IS MOVING FORWARD:
San Diego Opera is still alive and hoping for a bright future, but we need your help to make the 2015 season a reality. We are hard at work raising funds, exploring cost-saving options and planning our future to keep opera alive in San Diego, but we have a deadline of May 19* to raise critically-needed funds to go forward.

CAN SAN DIEGO OPERA BE SAVED?
Yes, San Diego Opera can be saved but it will take time, vision and commitment from everyone involved. All aspects are being looked at and we hope to have a plan in place very soon for the 2015 season and beyond.
HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?
It will probably be far less than the $10 million number you’ve heard in the press, as we are looking at every cost-saving option available while presenting great opera. Once a workable business plan is in place that better represents the local community, we will let you know.
ARE YOU MAKING CHANGES?
Change is essential to keep San Diego Opera strong. We must find a way to present grand opera but also to explore programming that appeals to a broad range in the community, present performances and concerts in different venues, and garner interest with historically non-opera attendees. Our goal is to create a viable plan going forward with the means to pay for it, and we need people like you standing by to make it a reality.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
FINANCIAL: We are in process of setting up a new account that will protect your money, so you can be the solution to San Diego Opera’s future. You truly are part of that solution and we promise that when you give, if we cannot succeed in meeting our financial goal to launch a 2015 season, you will get your donated money back. We hope to have this account set up soon and will contact you when it is complete, providing all relevant information.
