Opening Night Dinner

Friday, October 20, 2017│Post-performance

Celebration Dinner at Maison Violetta at the George R. Brown Convention Center

Chairmen:  Kristina and Paul Somerville
Attire:  Black Tie

This magnificent evening begins with a dazzling new production of Verdi’s La traviata, starring international powerhouse and HGO Studio alumna Albina Shagimuratova as Violetta Valéry, the high-class Parisian courtesan who is forced to abandon the only man she’s ever truly loved for the sake of preserving his family honor. 

Immediately following the performance, the revelry continues with the Opening Night Dinner. We will paint a stunning foyer of the GRB overlooking Discovery Green into a colorful, glittering Paris and celebrate in the spirit of Violetta and friends—joined by the illustrious cast and production team—and treated to an inspired dinner, a flow of Champagne, and festive surprises.

Raise your glass with us and “Libiamo ne’ lieti calici” (Let’s drink from the joyful cups) on Opening Night.
