"The Comedy is Over" but the season has just begun!
Opera highlights: Fast paced fun from cocktails, to riveting performance, to gala dinner and dancing.
The Gowns: Helene Gould's riveting lace inset gown by MIKAEL D, Lee Clark's ruffled Ralph Lauren Couture (you might recognize it from the over-the-top advertisement intro. to Downton Abbey), Mary Lyman in a mesmerizing shade of irridescent blue and strapless true ball gown by Oscar de La Renta, Emma Zuckerman in black strapless KaufmanFranco, Sheryl White in Naeem Khan, Lee Goldberg in ravishing red Valentino, Annika Kovtun in Herve Leger top and skirt by.... Annika Kovtun!, Dow Diva's amazing Diva Iris Strauss in colorful Zang Toi, and Claire Reiss in Monique Lhuillier!... while Karen Cohn chose a different Monique Lhuillier.

"Catering by Jeffrey Strauss was wonderful and the decor was outstanding." - Lee Clark
"The gala performance was Pagliacci. The gala was gorgeous Italian circus with the delicious dinner catered by Jeffrey Strauss. Great party and just gorgeous circus tent decor by Jim Lennox.

“It is a tragedy within a comedy” can be learned from the opera Pagliacci by Leoncavallo ~ the International Opera Season Opening opera of the San Diego Opera. It was perfection in every detail; from costume to the balance of voices, all are of the finest quality under the Directorship of our very own, the most respected, capable and be loved Artistic Director, Mr. Ian Campbell. The post opera gala was an extraordinary experiences! The magical Lady’s Lavatory ~ imagination, yes, it went well with the Opera!" - Claire Reiss
