Carnevale 2017



Saturday, January 28, 2017
Marriott Louisville Downtown

Kentucky Opera’s 2017 Carnevale will be filled with vibrant colors, heavenly drinks, pleasing food, and an evening of memorable experiences.  Opera is an art form that is as versatile as it is beautiful, and at this year’s black tie gala we will showcase how opera is a thread that weaves through the world of art in our community.

This year’s event will feature unique performances, an amazing auction, and an attendee experience that is second to none. Kentucky Opera is partnering with Cirque Louis, Jecorey Arthur (1200) plus additional local talent, to make this a night to remember for years to come! After the event, the main event space will turn into an after party with a DJ Garrett Crabtree and a laser light show.

Tickets are on sale now at $250 per person and tables are $2,500. Please fill out the form below to secure yours today. We hope that you and your friends will be our guests at Carnevale 2017!
