The Detroit Opera House: Thriving in an Ailing Economy

Monday, November 15, 2010

The national media frequently paints Detroit as a near constant subject of sad stories during this ailing economy. But there are outliers in every struggling economy, and in this city there is a bright and beautiful outlier: The Detroit Opera House is not struggling at all.  It is thriving, thanks in part to the leadership of its director, David Dichiera.

WDET's Martina Guzman spoke with David Dichiera and some opera enthusiasts who say they couldn't imagine not coming to the opera, even during a down economy.
