San Diego Opera Public Health Update

In response to the new recommendations from Governor Gavin Newsom to stay at home and limit travel to essential business, it is with a heavy heart that San Diego Opera informs you that we have postponed the remainder of our 2019/2020 season that was to continue with The Barber of Seville in April and The Falling and the Rising in May. This difficult decision was made with your health, safety, and well-being in mind and included input from the artists, board of directors and staff of San Diego Opera in response to the global coronavirus pandemic. It is all of our responsibility to flatten the curve.

In times of great uncertainty it is important to have something to look forward to. With this in mind, the three operas affected by the coronavirus outbreak - Aging Magician, The Barber of Seville, and The Falling and the Rising - are being scheduled for future seasons. The Company will announce its full season next month.
