Socialites, benefactors and avid supporters of the performing arts in North Texas will gather in the Winspear Opera House lobby for a pre-show reception while the other half of the space is transformed into an airy, flower-bedecked dining room for a superb seated luncheon by Wolfgang Puck Catering.

FIRST NIGHT Pre-Performance Dinner and After Party presented by Hall Arts Residences

FIRST NIGHT is your chance to put on that fabulous gown and be photographed on the red carpet, enjoy an elegant cocktail reception with friends, and savor a very special seated theme dinner— The Flying Dutchman—by Wolfgang Puck Catering.

Return to the party tent when the opera ends to find it transformed for the lively After Party featuring an 11-piece band, Downtown Fever.
