Honoring Jacqueline Badger Mars

We invite you to join us in saluting Washington National Opera Chairman Jacqueline Badger Mars during this year’s WNO Opera Gala on Saturday, June 3, 2017.   

As part of JFKC: A Centennial Celebration of John F. Kennedy and a Center-wide focus on programming inspired by President Kennedy’s ideals, this year’s signature WNO event has been wonderfully reimagined.

The night will begin with cocktails on the Kennedy Center terrace, followed by a star-studded concert in the Opera House.  After the performance, the Opera Gala’s traditional black-tie embassy dinners will take place, hosted by various Ambassadors at their embassies and residences across Washington. 

Your support of the Opera Gala will be integral to advancing WNO’s artistic programming, as well as its educational and community initiatives.  If you are interested in attending the Opera Gala, or would like to receive an invitation, please contact the Kennedy Center Special Events Office at (202) 416-8496 or e-mail us.

We look forward to seeing you there!
