What should you expect at Serenata?

This wonderful annual event features a fine wine dinner and an auction, gives us the opportunity to honor generous philanthropists, and celebrates the Austin Opera community in grand style.

This past season’s gala, A Celebration of Stars, applauded those that make Austin Opera the very special company it is. Transporting guests to Hollywood, the City of Stars, the celebratory event featured live jazz music, a gourmet four-course dinner curated by Executive Chef Elmar Prambs, delectable California wines selected by our wine and spirit sponsor Twin Liquors, luxury live and silent auctions, and a performance by star baritone Emmett O’Hanlon.

Gail & Jeff Kodosky

As well as celebrating 2022 honorees Gail and Jeff Kodosky, our Sarah and Ernest Butler Principal Conductor & Artistic Advisor Timothy Myers, our General Director & CEO Annie Burridge, and the incredible artists who grace the stage at the Long Center each season, this event helps raise vital funds for Austin Opera’s thrilling productions, engaging community initiatives, and innovative digital offerings.
