2016 Spring Gala

Event Leadership

Thelma and David Steward


A special thanks to Mr. & Mrs. Stephen F. Brauer for opening their home to the event, and to Mr. and Mrs. David Steward for underwriting the Spring Fete. 

Event Description:

Join us for a festive evening as we kick-off the 2016 festival season with the annual spring gala. Opera Theatre will pay tribute to special guest and legendary opera singer Grace Bumbry. This elegant event will also feature performances by principal artists from the upcoming season. 

To Benefit:

The gala will be planned by an active committee of community leaders and will support  the exceptional artists who make Opera Theatre’s season possible, from the world’s most acclaimed conductors, directors, designers, and choreographers, to the talented singers just beginning their careers onstage and the gifted young artisans who work behind the curtain.  Proceeds from the event will enable these artists to collaborate and learn from each other as they create innovative festival season productions, and to connect new audiences of all ages to the power and beauty of opera. 

Revenue Goal:

$650,000 with 400-450 guests in attendance
