Opera Theatre launched its 44th Festival Season with an exciting gala at the newly built Centene building, the expansion of the Centene Clayton Campus. Guests enjoyed an elegant dinner, dancing, and a brief performance, as well as a gorgeous view and exclusive access to the building before it opened.
The gala supports the exceptional artists who make Opera Theatre’s season possible, from the world’s most acclaimed conductors, directors, designers, and choreographers, to the talented singers just beginning their careers onstage and the gifted young artisans who work behind the curtain. Proceeds from the event enable these artists to collaborate and learn from each other as they create innovative festival season productions, and to connect new audiences of all ages to the power and beauty of opera. This gala raised over $1M to support the exceptional artists who make Opera Theatre’s season possible.
