April 5, 2014, 7 p.m. Wortham Theater Center
Mrs. Margaret Alkek Williams, ChairmanAttire: White Tie
The 2014 Houston Grand Opera Ball, Fleurs de l’Opéra, chaired by Margaret Alkek Williams, is inspired by the language of flowers. For centuries we have attached meanings to flowers. The language of flowers in art, literature and music is one of romance, beauty and — of course — occasional heartbreak. At Fleurs de l’Opéra we will pay tribute to the “flowers of the opera.” This elegant white tie evening will commence at 7:00 p.m. with a cocktail reception and silent auction. Imagine yourself in a secret garden hidden in the heart of the city. The Wortham Theater will be filled with thousands of cascading flowers and light from crystal candelabras. Along with beautiful music and a few surprises, it will truly be a night to remember.
