2022 Lyric Opera Ball

 

With the city of Rome in mind, the Lyric Opera Circle cordially invites you to the 2022 Lyric Opera Ball, Una Notte a Roma (One Night in Rome), on Saturday, April 9, at the Loews Kansas City Hotel. This black-tie ball to benefit Lyric Opera of Kansas City will feature a silent auction, a gourmet multi-course dinner, vocal entertainment, and dancing to the band Lost Wax. From elegant ambience reminiscent of ancient Roman architecture to the sounds of beautiful Italian music, the evening promises to be a night
to remember.

The Lyric Opera Ball supports the mission of the Lyric to bring high-quality live operatic performances to the Kansas City area and five-state region. In addition, the Lyric offers innovative programs designed to further music and arts education in schools, area neighborhoods, and underserved communities.

Various sponsorship levels and tickets are available for purchase below, reserve your table or tickets today. Ball guests who contribute at the Virtuoso Benefactor Level or above will receive exclusive invitations to the ball Benefactor Party at the stunning home of Dan Meiners and David Brinkerhoff.

The Lyric Opera Ball will also feature its own Fontana di Trevi, Trevi Fountain. According to legend, throwing a coin in the Trevi Fountain will bring you back to Rome in the future. The Circle invites you to share in this mythos by purchasing a commemorative Una Notte a Roma coin to throw and wish, not for a return to Rome, but for the Lyric’s triumphant return to the stage after a two-year intermission. Or, to keep as a memento. Coins are $25 each or five for $100 and can be purchased below.
