Over 200 guests of this gala enjoyed a behind the scenes peek into the world of Chicago Opera Theater filled with Latin-inspired bites and beats from Carnivale. Tiffany & Co. brought heat to the evening with a pulse-raising raffle including three prizes, raising over $4,000.
The night continued with performances from Outstanding Young Singer Award Nominees and Master of Ceremonies Sylvia McNair; followed by Sylvia’s presentation of a surprise “good-bye” film to Brian Dickie and gala guests. The night closed with a speech from the honoree himself. By the end of this lavish evening, “A Celebration Less Ordinary” grossed over $190,000 total for Chicago Opera Theater.
