Join Long Beach Opera for a production all its own a la fête on Saturday, October 7 at Hotel Maya. LBO's 39th Annual Gala, fête Hypnotique, honors celebrated operatic soprano, Patricia Racette, who stars in LBO’s production of Menotti’s The Consul, and The Port of Long Beach, a key corporate supporter of LBO’s education programs. This year LBO gives you the sun, the moon, the stars, and more.

Against a picturesque seascape, the much buzzed about fundraiser will have a stunning backdrop to complement a mesmerizing program. LBO favorite Suzan Hanson returns as Mistress of Ceremonies and will enchant you with an eclectic musical program that brings together esteemed singers and ensemble instrumentation. Be assured that you will be entertained throughout an unforgettable evening with silent and live auction, appetizers, drinks, dinner, and many opportunities to support LBO's adventurous artistic vision.

Your attendance and participation supports the passionate and relevant performances of LBO’s 2017/2018 season and funds many education programs that enrich the lives of youth across Southern California. Your support means LBO can expand its commitment to impacting a diverse audience and create community partnerships that change lives with the power of LBO’s operatic art.
