Dallas Opera Introduces FIRST NIGHT

| October 8, 2013 | Calendar

The Dallas Opera is thrilled to revive—by popular demand—the exciting festivities marking the opening of a new season, known as FIRST NIGHT. The one-night-only celebrations presented by NGP Energy Capital Management will take place both inside and outside the Margot and Bill Winspear Opera House at the AT&T Performing Arts Center with a lavish black-tie dinner at 6:00 provided by Puck Catering in a beautifully appointed tent in Sammons Park.

The menu and dinner music, as well as the artistic design, will reflect the cultural influences that dominate the 2013-2014 Season – “By Love Transformed.”

Sophisticated models will show off their extraordinary opera-inspired couture gowns, designed especially for the occasion by five internationally acclaimed fashion designers: Elizabeth Anyaa, Michael Faircloth, Abi Ferrin, Khan Nguyen and Nicolas Villalba. Several of the gowns and original sketches will be auctioned online by FIRST SIGHT sponsor, Heritage Auctions, beginning on October 25th.
