On Saturday, April 15, 2023, Houston’s most illustrious arts patrons, leaders, movers, shakers, and tastemakers will gather in style for Opera Ball 2023—Le Voyage À Marrakech.

For more than four decades, Houston’s Opera Ball has taken center-stage as one of the most celebrated events on our great city’s gala calendar. In 2022, after two pandemic-cancelled Balls, we journey back to the red carpet and our Wortham Theater Center home with a dreamy Moroccan adventure and a luxury auction showcasing the best of Houston, dining, travel,  jewelry, fashion, art, entertainment, superb wines and spirits, and more!

Please consider donating to the Opera Ball auction. For your generosity, you or your business will receive:

  • Visual brand display at Opera Ball and on our auction preview website (shared with 900+ HGO Patrons and Ball guests before the Ball)
  • Opportunity to be featured in a category-exclusive “Auction Highlights” email*
  • Recognition in Opera Cues, HGO’s full-color program and magazine distributed at all HGO performances (60,000 patrons per season) and mailed to key VIPs (Board of Directors, Trustees, etc.)
  • Recognition in a special Opera Ball feature in the Fall 2022 issue of Opera Cues


*Subject to materials deadlines and retail value of donation.
