The Dallas Opera hosted its annual First Sight Fashion Show and Luncheon Oct. 27, kicking off the 2016-17 season in style. The following night, guests returned to the Winspear Opera House for the First Night at the Opera, where the season opened with a stirring performance of Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin.
Versace at NorthPark Center presented the First Sight fashion show, which also featured elaborate costumes from past Dallas Opera productions. Ellen and Don Winspear chaired the event, with Joyce and Harvey Mitchell as honorary chairs. Tiffany Divis, Kara Goss, and Rhonda Marcus chaired the luncheon, while Matrice and Ron Kirk served as dinner chairs.
250 patrons attended the red carpet event before enjoying the opera. Following the performance, the party continued in the tent, which was decked out for late night jazz and cocktails.
