Houston Grand Opera Ball 2018: An Evening in Old Hollywood
Always a premier occasion on Houston’s gala calendar, Houston Grand Opera's Opera Ball brings together the city’s most notable movers, shakers, and tastemakers for an epic evening in support of HGO. 2018 will pay tribute to the Golden Age of Hollywood. The seated dinner will be catered by the culinary team of The Post Oak at Uptown Houston, led by executive chef Jean Luc Royere, formerly of Mandarin Oriental, Miami.
In a fitting nod to the bright lights and big stars of southern California, the ball will feature a rare, private performance by Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, David Lee Roth, sharing hits from his Gold and Platinum solo career and days as lead singer of Van Halen.
Opera Ball is Houston Grand Opera’s largest annual fundraiser, helping the organization to continue to present world-class opera in Houston. With the destruction caused by Hurricane Harvey, HGO and other arts organizations have suffered significant setbacks. This makes the 2018 Opera Ball all the more important to HGO’s future success.
