The Opera Ball
Saturday, June 6, 2015

We invite you to join us for Washington National Opera's annual Opera Ball on Saturday, June 6, 2015. Chaired by The Honorable Capricia Penavic Marshall, this celebration of opera and culture will be held under the generous patronage of His Excellency Peter Wittig, The Ambassador of Germany, and his wife, Mrs. Huberta von Voss-Wittig, at their residence in Northwest Washington, DC.

The Opera Ball is one of the Opera's most anticipated events and is WNO's largest annual fundraiser. On the evening of the Ball, guests will enjoy intimate black-tie dinners hosted by Ambassadors around the city before convening at the residence of the Ambassador of Germany for dessert, dancing, and performances.

Your support of this event would be greatly appreciated and would directly fund the Opera's artistic programming as well as educational and community initiatives. If you are interested in attending this year's Opera Ball or would like to receive an invitation, please contact the Kennedy Center Special Events office at (202) 416-8496.

We hope to see you there!
