It will be interesting to see how this works out. To my mind there is only one opera being performed all year. Gilbert and Sullivan is operetta and Graves will sing a recital with piano accompaniment. Is there only one performance of Don Giovanni? It's a starvation diet, leaving fans to content themselves with a dozen Met Movies. Where do you think the donations will go?

It's a sad commentary on the cultural state of our city. Wouldn't CAPA already be bringing these shows to town? Why even bother with the Opera Columbus tag? Is this going to build up the company or is it going to further reduce the remaining supporters?

It's official. Opera Columbus is dead. Despite what the article says. This city has lost another cultural jewel.
