We'd like to thank everyone who joined us for Diamond Heist: the 64th annual Diamond Horseshoe Ball on Saturday, September 22nd, 2018, at the Omni William Penn Hotel! Our fall gala was chaired by Alexandra Good, Esq., Daniel Gorchynsky, and Celia A. Soehner, Esq. We'd also like to thank all of our individual and corporate sponsors for this event.
Many opera companies open their seasons in a grand manner, but only Pittsburgh Opera has a tradition as long and glorious as the Diamond Horseshoe Ball. This year, a mysterious criminal theme revamped the long-standing tradition! Dinner, dancing, and excitement were all wrapped up into the perfect heist.
The evening's festivities included:
- 7:00 PM Cocktails
- 8:30 PM Dinner
- Silent and Live Auctions
- Performance by our Resident Artists
We look forward to all of the excitment in our 80th anniversary season and to 2019's Diamond Horseshoe Ball. For more information or inquiries about future events, contact Michael Braxton, Director of Development, at 412-281-0912 x259.
