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 59 years, the Tulsa Opera Ball creates lasting memories for local students and their families throughout the year.
Registration for the 2018-19 Opera Ball has ended. Stay tuned for updates about our 2018-19 Debutantes and Squires!
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 Young Artists.
Each Debutante and Squire receives 4 free tickets to any Tulsa Opera performance, including The Barber of Seville, The Little Prince, and Don Giovanni. 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 624 Kitchen & Catering.
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. Look for formal portraits of this year’s outstanding group of seniors in the March issue of Tulsa People Magazine.
