Opera Atelier is thrilled to return to live theatre and events! We are delighted to host our 2022 Versailles Gala in Koerner Hall this year. Choreographed by Jeannette Lajeunesse Zingg and hosted by Marshall Pynkoski, this special night will include performances that integrate instrumental and vocal music with baroque and contemporary dance forms, featuring Soprano and OA Artist in Residence Measha Brueggergosman-Lee, OA Pianist/Harpsichordist Christopher Bagan and Artists of Atelier Ballet. All attendees are invited to a cocktail reception following the performance.

The past few seasons have taken a financial toll on the company. As we worked with determination through the pandemic to create beautiful shows and keep artists working, we have lost significant ticket revenue from our inability to produce live shows. Your support is vital to our successful return to the stage for our upcoming 2022-2023 season!

Opera Atelier’s 2022 Versailles Gala is a celebration of our return to live performance, and we look forward to producing beautiful opera for many years to come! 

Approximate performance length 50 minutes.

Check out our online auction site, which is now open for bidding and donations! The auction will close at 9:00 pm ET on Friday June 24, 2022. See the
auction site for more details.
