Detroit’s premier party and fundraiser is back with the return of BravoBravo! at the Detroit Opera House June 1.
The annual black tie gala encourages people to “imagine, innovate, inspire” with a theatrical theme that celebrates storytelling, like the performances presented at the historic theater. Per tradition, BravoBravo! will include three floors of music, dancing and refreshments featuring the area’s most popular bars, restaurants and musicians. The official after-party is hosted by DJ Godfather at the 350 Terrace.
As part of the theatrical theme, the Detroit Opera House will be decorated with props and sets from Michigan Opera Theatre (MOT) opera productions, bringing some of opera’s greatest stories to life. This includes a “Hansel and Gretel” dessert room, a “Die Fledermaus” champagne bar and a “Carmen” sangria station. Décor inspired by “Don Giovanni,” “La bohème” and other operas will also be featured throughout the Opera House. Guests are encouraged to embellish their black tie attire with theatrical accessories to take part in the theme.
Headlining the event is a special performance by opera/soul singer Kisma Jordan and electro-pop violin band Nuclassica, featuring contemporary dancers choreographed by Liz Schmidt.
The event takes place from 8 p.m. – 12:30 a.m. at the Detroit Opera House, 1526 Broadway St. Detroit. General admission tickets are $160; VIP admission is $250 and includes a 7 p.m. early entry, a SkyDeck reception and access to the VIP lounge.
