Fremont Opera announces that it is suspending operations as of January, 2012.
The three operas we have produced (La Boheme, The Barber of Seville, and La Traviata) have been enthusiastically received by audiences and critics alike. But each production costs about $100,000, and we do not see the prospect of generating enough community and audience support to continue presenting opera at the high artistic standard which has been our hallmark.
Fremont Opera thanks all those who have helped us over the past four years - donors, patrons, sponsors, volunteers, and performers. We believe in what we did, and all who have been part of it can be proud.
