A Message From Speight Jenkins

At Seattle Opera’s Annual Meeting yesterday, General Director Speight Jenkins announced that the company expects to end its fiscal year with a balanced budget. In a video released today, he offers a message of hope and perseverance to Seattle Opera’s dedicated supporters. Jenkins acknowledges the economic challenges, but notes that “art flourishes when forced to be innovative,” which is exactly what Seattle Opera will do—search for innovative ways to continue to provide audiences with the level of quality they have come to expect.
