Starting the Season on a High Note

The Women’s Guild of the New Orleans Opera Association ushered in a new season.

“September Seduction” reminded patrons of the first opera of this season: Don Giovanni.

Held at the New Orleans Lakefront Airport Terminal’s Walnut Room, the gala featured a seated gourmet dinner by Messina’s and activities such as a deluxe wine basket raffle. The Lee Michaels “Lights Out” Extravaganza was a standout highlight – a blinking heart raffle where the last three hearts still lit up received jewelry from Lee Michaels.

The Patron Party preceded the Gala in the Walnut Room, which also hosted the silent auction prizes. The New Leviathan Oriental Foxtrot Orchestra provided entertainment as guests mingled amongst passed hors d’oeuvres.

Throughout the main event, gentlemen ballroom dancers twirled about to lively music by the Yat Pack and enticed ladies onto the dance floor. There was also a special floor show featuring Osman Torres and Taylor Schoen, and the 2015 USA Dancesport Champions.
