Red Carpet Bay Area sponsored the BRAVO! Opening Gala for San Francisco Opera on September 11, 2015. BRAVO! is San Francisco Opera’s group of young professionals dedicated to building a new audience for the opera.
Prior to the opening night performance of Verdi’s Luisa Miller, some 300 BRAVO! Club members and guests gathered for a wine reception on the outdoor loggia of the War Memorial Opera House. Post-performance the BRAVO! party continued down the street at restaurant Jardiniere. The celebration went on until past 2 in the morning.
