Meet Our Opera Ball Debutantes and Squires

Tulsa Opera annually introduces a special group of Tulsa high school seniors as Opera Ball Debutantes and Squires preparing for their journey into adulthood.

As part of this city’s vibrant social calendar for the past 60 years, the Tulsa Opera Ball creates lasting memories for local students and their families throughout the year.

Registration for the 2019-20 Opera Ball has closed. For more information, please contact Meredith Miers by email at or by phone at (918) 582-4035, ext 105.

About the Opera Ball

Starting with an Opera Ball Kickoff Party in September, the Debutantes and Squires enjoy a sit-down dinner with their families. The party will feature intimate performances by Tulsa Opera’s Filstrup Resident Artists.

Each Debutante and Squire receives 4 free tickets to any Tulsa Opera performance, including Carmen, Madama Butterfly, and Emmeline. In October, the students gather for a Skeet Shooting event at the Tulsa Gun Club, a nonprofit shooting range that teaches shotgun safety and training. The Debutantes and Squires return in February for Casino Night at Southern Hills Country Club.

Wearing spectacular, custom-designed gowns created by international designer Carmen Marc Valvo, and handsomely designed white tie and tails from Beshara’s Formal Wear, the Debutantes and Squires make their debut at the Opera Ball in March at the Mayo Hotel.
