Economic Crisis Affecting OC Opera
The LA Times reports:
The economic crunch has swallowed Opera Pacific's 2008-2009 season after a single production, "The Barber of Seville." The two remaining operas, "The Grapes of Wrath," a new work by Ricky Ian Gordon and Michael Korie, and Richard Strauss' "Salome," with Deborah Voigt (left) in the title role, will not be staged, the company announced Tuesday. The reason: a drop in donations — on which it relies for 60% of its revenue.
On the plus side,'90s boy band Hanson, is still scheduled to perform in OC this weekend. So . . . that's just as good.
