Party like Pavarotti - Calgary Opera's fundraising dinner hits all the high notes

An elegant evening was enjoyed by all at the Calgary Opera Gala . A theatre lobby beautifully transformed into black tie luxury!

Life was definitely on the sweet side for the guests at this year's Calgary Opera Gala.  This fundraising dinner is always themed to the Opera and this year was an Italian theme inspired by La Traviata.

Sing for your supper - a taste of the Opera Gala

Devour loves the challenge of catering the Calgary Opera Gala dinner. We hosted the tasting this week to get things rolling.

The elements of the Opera gala evening are ones that we absolutely love to work with; a beautiful and dramatic setting (you can not get better than being on an actual stage!), a completely themed menu that evokes the time and place of each Opera, wines paired to each course, and the challenge of producing and serving this sumptuous meal for 320 guests with no onsite kitchen. The challenges are many - but the Devour Catering team lives for events like this! It is Calgary Opera's signature fundraising event and in 2012 raised a very impressive $330,000 dollars.
