According to the makers of Le Grande Courtage, “A Party without Champagne is just a Meeting.” And on May 6th, WGO will follow that very sentiment as we will toast the town, with THE WICHITA GRAND OPERA CHAMPAGNE BALL, THE ONLY Social Event or Opera Ball of it’s kind in the state of Kansas.
Sip on the signature bubbly as you revel in the evening’s festivities; delight in a three-course dinner complete with champagne flair; fall in love with Guest of Honor, Wichita’s own Chris Mann, as he serenades those in attendance with selections as The Phantom from Webber’s “The Phantom of the Opera,” a part he made famous with 700 performances nationwide; bid on luxury live auction items and take your chance with the radiant raffle; and dance the night away to the tunes of the spectacular Matt Johnston and Co. returning by popular demand.
As Napoleon Bonaparte once famously said, “In victory, you deserve champagne. In defeat, you NEED it!” And our Champagne Opera Ball committee is taking that to heart. Under the leadership of Committee Chairs Georges and Jocelyne Ausseil and Honorary Chairs Tony Caputo and LewJene Schneider and an enthusiastic and energetic ball committee pulled together from all walks of life already hard at work, Champagne! will be a treat for all in attendance.
Perhaps Mark Twain said it best when he exclaimed “Too much of anything is bad, but too much Champagne is JUST RIGHT.” May 6th will be a night to remember, but be sure to wear your dancing shoes and prepare to see and be seen.
