Opera Club

Good food, good friends and great music. Join the Opera Club and get an insider’s view of the opera company. The Opera Club is a social organization composed of people who love the opera and attend our performances Your membership does not directly support the New Orleans Opera, however, you do get three fabulous dinners throughout the season while rubbing elbows with the stars and might even get a chance to sing some too!

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, click here.
