Dear friends of inewsource,

This morning, we’re bringing you a new story in our ongoing coverage of the San Diego Opera.

KPBS reporter Angela Carone, in partnership with inewsource‘s executive director Lorie Hearn, dove deep into contracts and financial forms to discover what may turn out to be one of the Opera’s biggest liabilities — its contracts with Ian and Ann Campbell.

One former IRS official told us,

“I think the state attorney general will be giving the [opera] a call soon.”

The Opera board is meeting this afternoon to talk about the opera’s future, and we’ll be bringing you the latest developments as soon as they happen.
