Opera Naples is pleased to announce that tickets are now available for the company’s upcoming annual gala, “Fête du Cirque”, which will take place on Wednesday, February 19 at 6:00 p.m. at the Grand Lawn Pavilion of the Ritz-Carlton Tiburon.
Opera Naples is delighted that Myra Janco Daniels, founder of the Naples Philharmonic Center for the Arts (now Artis-Naples), will serve as the Honorary Chair of Fête du Cirque, which promises to be one of the most stunningly-visual fundraising events of the season. The affair will be highlighted by colorful performers from Circus Sarasota who will serve as a curtain raiser to the opera company’s staging of the popular two-act opera, “I Pagliacci (The Clowns)” February 21 and 22. Both events – Fête du Cirque and the opera – will be held “under the big top” at the same venue – the Grand Lawn Pavilion of the Ritz-Carlton Tiburon.
In addition to the excitement of circus acts, attendees dressed in “opera chic” will enjoy a gourmet dinner and an evening of entertainment emceed by Ringmaster and celebrity auctioneer, Scott Robertson, who will also oversee the live auction that will include tickets to the Royal Enclosure during Britain’s Royal Ascot Week next June, the most prestigious event on the European horse-racing calendar invariably attended by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II; tickets to New York’s Fashion Week; and a veranda suite on a luxury Seabourn cruise.
Ticket options for Opera Naples’ Fête du Cirque include a table of 10 for $5,000 (premium location) or $3,000; and individual tickets for $500 per person (premium) or $300 person. This event sells out very quickly. To reserve a seat, please contact the Opera Naples’ ticket office at 239.963.9050 or visit www.OperaNaples.org.
