I am a longtime subscriber to and supporter of the Ahmanson, Taper and Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. I have been excited by the prospect of having such a facility in Orange County.
As soon as I received the program schedules, I sent a check for each series, and in the case of the Opera Pacific, a donation of $100. Sometime later I received an acknowledgement of our subscription and contribution, which said I would have two seats in Series 3, Section OIC.
This notice also solicited an additional contribution, which I felt was in bad taste. Certainly there were a majority of subscribers who made no contribution for whom a second request would be indicated.
Now I receive a second communique informing me that my seats have been downgraded, apparently because I didn't send more money.
