This “friendraiser” supports a new opera co-created with 1,300 young people from Chicago and Oak Park. Our tale-for-the-curious has its world premiere at the Kehrein Center for the Arts, June 23-26, 2022.

Admission to the garden party begins at $50.00 for adults and $15.00 for children under 18, with higher sponsorship levels available. In the event of a rain cancellation, you can choose to have your donation refunded or applied to seats at the Future Perfect Opera premiere. If you  can’t  make it to the picnic, your donation will still be vital.

Reserve in advance. The address will be shared upon confirmation.
