Saturday May 21 - La Colombe d'Or

Held annually, the Bravissimo gala is the largest fundraiser of the year for Opera in the Heights, and raises critical funds for future seasons.

On Saturday, May 21st 2016, Oh! Patrons, guests, and friends enjoyed a beautiful evening of cocktails, dinner, and live music at La Colombe d'Or. Celebrating 20 years of Opera in the Heights, all turned out in their glitz and glam to support our organization. Guests enjoyed live opera performances from Oh! stars Laura Coale and Julia Engel. 

Opera in the Heights offers a heartfelt thank you to all of our guests that turned this event into a truly Emerald Evening.
