City leaders join opera for end of year celebration!
The Inner Circle of The Dallas
Opera, consisting of dedicated patrons and vital contributors to the
annual campaign which helped push The Dallas Opera "into the black" for
the first time in years, convened for an especially gleeful end-of-year
celebration on the evening of June 9th, co-hosted by The Residences at The Ritz Carlton, Dallas, and Ellen Terry Realtors.
The celebration of an extraordinarily
successful end-of-fiscal year, in which The Dallas Opera eliminated its
accumulated deficit, was simply too big for a single location. Party-goers enjoyed exceptional food and drink, representative of the most famous opera houses in the world, at both The Hotel Crescent Court and the Sales Offices of The Residences at The Ritz Carlton, Dallas.
Highlights of the menu included a pasta
bar "a La Scala," caviar and vodka at the Kirov Opera in Russia,
Champagne and cheeses at the Paris Opera House, and barbeque at the new
Margot and Bill Winspear Opera House (breaking ground later this year).
Guests heard glowing remarks from Dallas Mayor Laura Miller, City Councilwoman Angela Hunt and our own General Director, Karen Stone. They were also invited to tour the Sales Offices of The Ritz for dessert and wine pairings.
A cool and fizzy start to a busy summer at The Dallas Opera!
