LA Opera announced today that the company has paid off the remainder of the money it borrowed to get it through a rough patch in 2009, in no small part due to expenses from producing its first (and brilliant) Ring Cycle.
I found this to be refreshingly good news. Congratulations to the company and their supporters. For all those people who complained so vociferously about the LA Board of Supervisors backing the loan and screaming it was a waste of money and priorities, I have just one question for you:
Don't you feel a bit silly now?
