The Minnesota Opera will salute its donors and supporters on September
20 when they throw a special gala in their honor. The black-tie affair
includes a lavish three-course dinner and silent auction at the James
J. Hill Reference Library before guests are swept away by Verdi’s
passionate and classic melodrama Il trovatore.
The evening begins with a social hour at 5 pm, followed by the dinner
at 5:45 pm. The first 100 people to arrive to the silent auction at
6:30 pm will receive a free gift. The performance begins at 8 pm at the
Ordway Center in St. Paul. Single tickets are $350 and do not include
tickets for the performance. Tickets for the cast party can be
purchased for an additional $40. For more information, visit www.mnopera.org.
