The San Diego Opera company announced Wednesday that it will cease operations at the end of the current season, citing financial reasons. The decision was taken in order to avoid declaring bankruptcy. The opera in San Diego (California) was created almost 50 years ago. The final production will be Massenet’s ‘Don Quixote’, which will run from April 5 to 13.

In the Los Angeles Times, Ian Campbell, the company’s general director, said: « Over the last of several years, we have lost a number of prominent contributors, frequently because of death, but especially during the recent economic downturn. The demand for opera in this city isn’t high enough. »
