Welcome to the Women’s Guild 2017- 2018 Opera Season!
Join us this year as we celebrate the New Orleans Opera’s 75th Anniversary and our City’s 300th Birthday !! I promise an experience filled with fun, friendship and lots of fulfilling operatic drama.
Our membership of over 350 diverse and talented women join forces to create unique experiences all planned for fun while fundraising: fundraising that helps keep Opera alive in New Orleans. In addition to fundraising events we host educational programs, tours of the Opera Guild Home; plus several fun Membership events throughout the opera season.
You’ll just love meeting in our beautiful Garden District Home which was built in 1858 and is filled with pieces of 18th and 19th century art and antiques. Here’s a preview of our fun events:
– President’s Tea in September
– Revelry on the River – October 21, 2017 – Westin Hotel
– Eggnog Party and Boutique in December
– Mad Hatter – March 8, 2018 – Marriott Hotel
– Annual Membership Meeting in May
You won’t want to miss our Opera Orientations, which are held on a Sunday approximately one or two weeks prior to each opera performance. You’ll experience an up close and personal forum with the opera stars and Maestro Robert Lyall, all while sipping libations and feasting on opera themed fare. Check our website for dates.
Finally, be sure to schedule a tour and learn all about the history of our beautiful Women’s Guild Home. Docent led tours are conducted every Monday, September through May.
