Appel Presents... P.O. Box #33083, San Diego, California 92163
Editors Note

Dear Readers ... Seems like all the 'news' today in our SD theatre world, is about either - the Balboa Park 100th Year Centennial Celebration debacle, and/or the sudden death of the SD OPERA.  Truthfully, financial woes aside, and we all recognize that every arts organization is somewhat struggling with financial stay-afloat issues -  however, to most SD theatre-goers and opera fans, the "death" of the San Diego Opera, is an emotional (still unjustified) TIMELY issue only! 

The UT and other local newspapers are filled with - apparently, questionable donations received or not received, losses incurred or to be incurred, monies paid-to, and not yet paid-to SD Opera Co-leaders Artistic Director Ian Campbell, and his former wife, Executive Director Ann Campbell.  We are saturated with the 'neas' and 'yeas' of the SD Opera Board's surprise action - to suddenly close down permanently the SD Opera Company - and, for those of us, not a part of before ... nor,  a part of those financial decisions now ... who are we to believe?  And ... do we really care now ...?  As one who has always had the deepest 'respect'  for the accomplishments of Ian Campbell, over these many successful years of the SD Opera - Now, the point is - our (collective we) fans of the SD Opera - as we have known it ... the OPERA is now dead ... downstage and center!    Unfortunate TIMING ... Alas, what next ....?    

For those readers who missed, or have not yet seen the following productions ... they indeed, represent some of the very BEST in local theatre and musicals:
