Event Spotlight } 2015 Houston Ballet Ball

More than 450 Houston Ballet guests, dressed in exquisite gowns, classic tuxedos and extravagant masks, made the 2015 Houston Ballet Ball a night to remember.

The evening themed “The Masked Ball: a Tribute to Romeo and Juliet” started with hors d’oeuvres and libations as guests mingled in the transformed Grand Foyer, with wall to ceiling drapes, chandeliers and mirrored table-tops as a modern take on a classic theme.

Houston Ballet Academy students and Company members gave a special tribute to Phoebe and Bobby Tudor, the evening’s honored guests, in recognition of their tireless support of Houston Ballet.

Guests were invited to bid on live auction items including a weeklong stay at the Tudor’s Nantucket home and a gorgeous sapphire and diamond necklace from Tenenbaum & Co., the Ball’s jewelry curators. The silent auction featured art from the Barbara Davis Gallery, additional jewels from Tenenbaum and many other treasures.

Guests dined on a gourmet dinner by Jackson & Company and danced the night away to Party on the Moon.

The Ballet Ball raised $1,216,000 for the Houston Ballet Foundation, the second highest number raised from the annual event.
