MNOP Opening Night Gala
Sold out the past three years, Minnesota Opera’s Opening Night Gala is guaranteed to transform lives – from audiences to artists to young people whose music education begins with MN Opera. Come walk the red carpet, be transported to Mount Olympus, and attend the opening of Strauss’ Elektra. This year, we honor Lucy Rosenberry Jones and James Johnson for their philanthropic efforts and many years of support at MN Opera.
The MNOP Gala 2019 is affectionately referred to as “opera’s biggest night out” and is an event unlike any other. All funds raised support youth education programs at MN Opera.
The MNOP Gala 2019 is set in Mount Olympus where the essence of imagination is provoked by poetic elegance.
