MN Opera 2018 Season Gala
Saturday, October 6, 2018 — The Saint Paul Hotel
Sold out the past two years, Minnesota Opera’s opening night gala is guaranteed to transform lives – those in the audience and hundreds of artists on and off the stage, whose careers have been launched by MN Opera. Come walk the red carpet and get transported to the French Riviera before you attend the opening of Puccini’s La Rondine. This year, we honor Dale Johnson’s 35-year career with MN Opera and the national acclaim that his artistic leadership has brought to this company and hundreds of artists.
The 2018 Season Gala, affectionately referred to as “opera’s biggest night out,” is an event unlike any other. All funds raised support the Resident Artist Program and training the artists of tomorrow.
The 2018 Season Gala will transport you to the French Riviera where the essence of imagination is provoked by poetic elegance.
