Over 40 members, new members, and guests launched the season and reconnected with friends at the Royal Pig Pub at 350 E. Las Olas. Over drinks and appetizers, we caught up with co-members who returned to Florida to enjoy the season. A lot of members stayed for a special prix-fixe dinner organized by the Royal Pig. The favorite drink was the dirty pig, a dirty martini garnished with a bacon-wrapped olive. What an unusual way to savor a vodka!
Our first membership event is on Saturday evening, October 25th, and we will be treated to a performance and cocktails at the lovely home of a prominent board member.
Then, we’ll be ready to enjoy a great season of Opera. Our first is Madama Butterfly, which opens on Thursday, December 4th. There will be a Reception at the Broward Center before the performance, so be sure to get tickets for both the performance and the Pre-Opera party. If you or your company is interested in helping to sponsor the reception, please contact Eric or Ruth at [email protected]. Justin Moss will do a pre-Opera presentation to provide us with his unique perspective and little-known facts about this great Puccini classic. Even if you have already seen what is probably the world’s most famous opera, the staging and sets will still astound you, and the story and melodies literally never get old.
Come to our Lyrical Luncheon on November 20 and get private glimpse into the workings of an Opera Company, directly from the people who manage it.
And mark your calendars for our Holiday Party on Friday, December 18th so that we can celebrate the season together in style!

Photos from this event will be posted shortly.
