The company, based on Santa Ana, California, will use L'Op_ra de Montr_al's production of Aida instead.
The program changes are a bid to save money for the company.
Robert C. Jones, the opera company's president and executive director, said in a statement, "The fiscal health for the organization has been the paramount concern since my arrival five months ago. There was the real possibility of dissolution and our largest goal is to stabilize the company financially. Together, canceling Pirates and using and existing production of Aida will result in a net savings to the company of over $1 million next season."
