Welcome to our 2022 Richard Koenig Opera Ball Debutantes & Squires

Tulsa Opera annually sponsors a ball celebrating achievement and transition for a special group of Tulsa high school seniors who come together for a historic event in support of the organization as Opera Ball Debutantes and Squires.

As part of this city’s vibrant social calendar for the past 61 years, the Tulsa Opera Ball is an iconic happening each year. It offers lasting recognition and memories to participating students and their families and a delightful opportunity for others to gather and contribute to further the unique cultural and vocal music education mission of Tulsa Opera.

About the Opera Ball

Starting with an Opera Ball Kickoff Party, the Debutantes and Squires enjoy a kick-off celebration with their families. The party will feature intimate and fun performances by Tulsa Opera’s Filstrup Resident Artists.

In the fall, each Debutante and Squire receives 4 complimentary tickets to any Tulsa Opera 2022-2023 season mainstage production.

The Debutantes and Squires will return in the spring for the Opera Ball Rehearsal and the Opera Ball where they will be wearing spectacular, custom-designed couture gowns and handsomely-designed white tie and tails.

Opera Ball Debutantes and Squires will make their much anticipated, elegant debut at the 2023 Opera Ball in the spring.
