In Honor of Richard Koenig

Tulsa Opera and the Opera Ball would not be what it is today without the significant contributions of Richard Koenig.

Richard served as as the Chief Development Director from 2013 until his death in 2020. His leadership and contribution to Tulsa Opera was significant. Through his leadership, he gained significant financial support and fostered long lasting and invaluable friendships for the Tulsa Opera. Richard led many successful events including our signature event, the annual Opera Ball.

Through his attention to detail and foresight, the Opera Ball continues to bring friends and patrons of Tulsa Opera together each year. Richard Koenig was and will always be the best of Tulsa Opera.
