What could be more fun than an operatic cocktail party?
This year the 9th annual Halifax Summer Opera Workshop presents three full-length works: Sondheim’s A Little Night Music, Poulenc’s Les dialogues des carmelites and Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro. Because we’ve set Figaro in the 1960s (and because it’s our centrepiece production, with a full orchestra for the first time in our history), we’ve decided to throw a fabulous cocktail party to celebrate!
Join us for an evening of elegant 1960s-themed drinks and nibbles and a chance to meet, hear and support some of the rising young stars of the Workshop! This intimate and exclusive fundraising party will be held on Saturday July 27, from 7:30 to 10:00 pm at the home of our Board President Andrew Pickett (near Inglis and South Park) in Halifax.
A silent auction will be held during the event as well — be sure to be on the lookout for more information regarding the exciting items we’ll be offering, which will include art, jewellery and travel packages.
All money raised goes to support our tremendously talented scholarship students, many of whom will be singing at the party.
We encourage you to dress up (either in 1960s style or fancy cocktail clothes), mingle with the artists and enjoy an evening of music and fun! The most fabulous outfit will win a prize!
How can I get tickets?
Tickets bought or reserved in advance are $25 each. Unreserved tickets at the door will be $35 each.
