San Diego Opera Officially Separates From Campbells

“‘Ian Campbell, Ann Spira Campbell and the opera have agreed to try and resolve their differences in an amicable manner and no further comments will be made at this time,’ opera officials said in a brief statement.” Ian had run the company for 31 of its 49 years, with now-ex-wife Ann as his deputy, until stakeholders rebelled at the sudden decision earlier this year to dissolve the company.
