Andrea Puente-Catán, producer, lecturer, widow of the Mexican composer Daniel Catán, has joined San Diego Opera as Major Gifts Officer in charge of Hispanic donors. Catan, who died in 2011, was a close friend of Placido Domingo.
In an unrelated development, San Diego Opera has also hired Dominic Domingo, Placido’s grandson, as its director of artistic administration. Dominic has been until now assistant company manager at Los Angeles Opera, where his grandfather is general director.
What goes round, goes round.
