A very intimate lunch was hosted by the San Francisco Opera Guild at the new Roka Akor restaurant in San Francisco on August 14th in anticipation of The Opera Ball 2013: The Garden of Good and Evil, taking place tomorrow, September 6th. The opening of San Francisco Opera’s 91st Season will feature an ambiance created by Colin Cowie, internationally acclaimed designer and celebrity event producer.
Cowie is expected to “really go to town” with the Garden of Good and Evil theme, and said it will be “sexy and chic”, it will have the “right amount of wrong”, it will “start out good and end with an evil twist”. Of course, the food by McCalls Catering & Events will be amazing and there will be fun surprises.
Tickets to the Opera Ball 2013 were sold out a month in advance, which means plenty of dazzling ball dresses to admire, and most importantly, more than 60,000 students in over 230 schools throughout Northern California will receive the benefits of arts education as only opera can deliver.
Colin Cowie loves San Francisco and joked about how he brings the weather every time he visits. Enjoy our favorite looks from our lunch date with the Opera Guild and Colin Cowie.
