San Francisco City Hall
Opera Guild Event
Dear Opera Lovers,
The pleasure of your company is requested at the opening of San Francisco Opera’s 92nd Season, Opera Ball 2014: Passione. This highly anticipated evening will take place on Friday, September 5th, with a new production of Vincenzo Bellini’s dazzling Norma feeffe
uring world-renowned soprano Sondra Radvanosky.
Designed by internationally acclaimed event designer Riccardo Benavides, Opera Ball 2014 will begin at five o’clock as you are escorted down the red carpet by Roman Legionnaires into San Francisco City Hall for an elegant cocktail reception. Guests will then adjourn to Julius Caesar's resplendent imperial palace, for a lavish banquet orchestrated by celebrated caterer, McCalls Catering & Events. At eight o’clock, the curtain will rise at the War Memorial Opera House for the opening night performance of Norma
, highlighted by a once-in-a-generation soprano in the role made famous by Maria Callas. Following the dramatic conclusion of Bellini’s opera, patrons will return to City Hall for a night of decadence with cocktails, desserts and dancing the night away.
Annually, more than 60,000 students in over 230 schools throughout Northern California receive the benefits of arts education as only opera can deliver. Please download the Opera Ball order form here
