Une Nuit À Marrakech
Opera Ball 2020 Update
Regrettably, per current COVID-19 pandemic mandates, Opera Ball is unable to take place on Saturday, April 4, 2020 at the Wortham Theater Center as planned.
The uncertainties around when we will be able to gather in numbers again—paired with scheduling challenges as we enter HGO’s exciting 2020–21 season of opera in the fall—have made rescheduling in this calendar year unfeasible.
We remain eager to share Une Nuit à Marrakech with you along with Opera Ball chairmen Jennifer and Benjamin Fink who have graciously agreed to extend their role into the 2020–21 season. Opera Ball— Une Nuit à Marrakech will now take place on Saturday, April 10, 2021. In this sense, we have rescheduled into next year’s calendar and look forward to that celebration.
We hope you will consider one of the following actions:
- Donate your existing Opera Ball contribution to HGO and help defray this season’s significant loss due to the cancellation of all spring performances.
- Transfer your existing Opera Ball 2020 contribution to Opera Ball 2021. Your existing table or tickets would be good for our new April 10, 2021 date.

We wish to thank Jen and Ben for their enthusiastic leadership as well as our creative event partners for their time and talents—all have agreed to stay on board for next year’s Moroccan adventure.
We are incredibly proud of how HGO has stepped to the forefront of the performing arts community, pledging to support the contracted artists whose livelihoods are dependent on the show “going on”—even when it cannot. A world without creativity and empathy would be a very sad world indeed.
