Pensacola Opera will host its annual Ball in the style of Operazzi on the Nile, inspired by our January production of Aïda. The evening included a sit-down dinner and dancing to music by The Don Snowden Big Band with Holly Shelton. Unique items and experiences were featured in live and silent auctions. This year’s chair is David E. Dear and the honorary chair is Buzz Ritchie. All proceeds from this event support the Opera’s many artistic and educational initiatives, from professional mainstage productions to nationally recognized education and community engagement programs.
