59th annual Diamond Horseshoe Ball

October 11, 2013
6:30 PM - 1:00 AM
Location: Omni William Penn Hotel, Downtown Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh Opera begins its historic 75th season with a shimmering, sparkling, positively glittering evening on Friday, October 11.

Many opera companies open their seasons in a grand manner, but only Pittsburgh Opera has a tradition as long and storied as the Diamond Horseshoe Ball. This grande dame of galas features a cocktail reception, performances by the much-loved Resident Artists of Pittsburgh Opera, live and silent auctions, dancing to the music of Cityscape, and many other surprises!

This year’s festivities will take place under the same gleaming chandeliers of the Grand Ballroom at the historic Omni William Penn Hotel, where the very first Diamond Horseshoe Ball took place. It is sure to be an event to remember!

  • Contact Special Events Manager Samuel Badger at 412-281-0912, ext. 225 to request an invitation or get more information. 
  • Contact the Omni William Penn to secure your rooms for this special Opera Weekend, including Diamond Horseshoe Ball and the October 12 opening of AIDA!
