John Malveaux: San Diego Opera, Where Latonia Moore Performed 'Aida' in 2013, Announces Closing After 2014-2015 Season

Latonia Moore in Aida, San Diego Opera 2013

John Malveaux of www.MusicUNTOLD.com writes:

As a small presenter of orchestral and chamber music concerts with ambition to present small opera productions, a statement by the president of the San Diego Opera regarding the announcement of closing after 2014 season grabbed my attention. 
"With upwards of 280 people working on a production and up to $19,000 for one lead singer per performance (because they are in demand worldwide). Add the cost of sets and costumes, and other support. Grand opera is no small undertaking."
