Carnevale 2018


February 3, 2018 | 6pm | Marriott Louisville Downtown

Laissez les Bon Temps Rouler at Kentucky Opera’s 2018 Carnevale!

We are traveling to New Orleans to gather the spirit and charm of Mardi Gras and bringing it to Louisville to infuse for an evening of fundraising and entertainment.  This year’s event will feature live music and dancing to Billy Goat Strut Revue, unique performances from our studio artists, a silent and live auction, plus New Orleans influenced food and drink.

Tickets are on sale now at $275 per person and tables are $2,750. We hope that you and your friends will be our guests at Carnevale 2018!
