Good food, good friends and great music. Join the Opera Club and get an insiders view of the opera company. Your membership directly supports the opera’s operating budget and provides you with three fabulous dinners throughout the season. You will rub elbows with the stars and might even get a chance to sing some too!
The Opera Club is a social organization which supports the New Orleans Opera. It is composed of people who love the opera and attend our performances. The club also contributes financially to the operation of the Opera, with approximately half of the membership dues going directly to the Association.
The club is known for its social events. Three times each season, we have a party to enjoy each other’s company and meet the stars of the opera about to be performed. The dinners are held at the beautiful Opera Guild home on Prytania Street and are formal affairs with a catered menu and open bar. Maestro Lyall introduces the stars and speaks about the upcoming performances. In addition to dinner and cocktails, each party includes entertainment related to the upcoming performances.
The club also has an annual holiday gathering. Admittance is separate from club dues but is very reasonable in cost. This event is also held in the Guild home, which is always beautifully decorated for the holiday season.
We would love to have you as a member! If you are interested, please contact Gina Klein or call (504) 529-2278, ext. 227 if you are interested in joining this fun and generous group!
