Debbie Turner and Conrad Prebys Host Opera Patron Party

More Social Diary Event Coverage ....HOME


January 14th, 2012 was a night of Opera season anticipation as San Diego Opera Patrons arrived to the exquisite San Diego home of Debbie Turner and Conrad Prebys.

As guests received a warm welcome from hosts Debbie Turner and Conrad Prebys, champagne flutes and toasts went round as Hyatt Regency La Jolla appetizers were tray passed. The sushi from Cafe Japengo was a hit among the gals readying up for their gowns for the January 28th Opera Gala!

Matt Strauss with opera singer Sean Panikkar, Iris Strauss, opera singer Lise Lindstrom, and Ian Campbell


Among the patrons there were Raffaella and John Belanich, Claire Reiss, Iris and Matthew Strauss, Sally and John Thornton, Faye Wilson, Lynda and Rich Kerr, Alberta Feurzeig, Olivia Farrell, and the Lee's. That's Lee Clark and Jerry Pikolysky and Lee and Frank Goldberg.

More there included Karen Cohn, the President of the San Diego Opera Board of Directors, and Don Cohn, Valerie Cooper, Joan and Irwin Jacobs (the Jacobs just returned from a wonderful trip to South America), Sheila and Jeffrey Lipinsky, Mary Keough Lyman, Anne Otterson, Lori and Bill Walton, and Ann and Ian Campbell.

A featured draw to the evening were select arias performed by Salome opera stars Lise Lindstrom and Sean Panikkar. They were accompanied by pianist Dr. Nic Reveles, and they were bravo'd and loudly applauded at the end of each aria.

A grand evening for opera patrons including fun moments of the opera stars wanting photos with basketball Hall of Famer Bill Walton.

Rumor is that Bill Walton might be a supernumerary in an upcoming opera. At 7 feet tall-ish.... We think you will be able to spot him on stage!

Be advised strictly no downloading, publishing, broadcasting, printing, or copying of photos or content. Please email purchase requests of photos you are in.

Enjoy the Photos!
