We are pleased to invite you to celebrate the most anticipated event of the season, Houston Grand Opera's Viva Italia Fantasy Ball 2012.

Inspired by the drama and beauty of Italy's rich cultural heritage, this year's ball will conjure the Villa d' Este, on the timeless shore of Italy's Lake Como, which is world renowned for its magnificent gardens and elegant style – a source of inspiration for Giuseppe Verdi, Italy's national treasure. As with every HGO experience, the ball promises to be spectacular, fun and full of surprises.

This elegant, white-tie evening will commence at 7:00 pm with a cocktail reception and silent auction. The Events Company, guided by Richard Flowers' extraordinary craftsmanship for which he is nationally known, will be channeling Villa d' Este's gardens into the Wortham's lobby, where the evening's events and entertainment will unfold. While dining to the music of David Caceres, Jackson and Company will be serving a delectable meal, created by Jackson Hicks and inspired by Villa d' Este's finest menus – presented in his customary, white-gloved, gold-standard style.

Please join us at the Viva Italia Fantasy Ball 2012!
