Always a premier occasion on Houston’s gala calendar, Opera Ball brings together the city’s most notable movers, shakers, and tastemakers for an epic evening in support of HGO. Opera Ball 2019: Cielito Lindo will be freely inspired by Mexico’s rich, vibrant culture and an extraordinary mix of influences and creative collisions—a land that inspires awe with its art, landscapes, architecture, folklore, and cuisine—all buoyed by the colorful and resilient spirit of its people..
“Cielito Lindo”——loosely translated to “pretty darling” or “heavenly one”—is a traditional Mexican song written by Quirino Mendoza y Cortes in 1882 and beloved throughout the Spanish-speaking world and beyond as a symbol of love and unity.
