The young professionals of Michigan Opera Theatre's Volunteer Association will once again hold one of Detroit's hottest and most-anticipated cultural events of the year. BravoBravo! 2012: Color the Night, presented by Chrysler, will showcase Detroit's top restaurants and best entertainment to thousands of revelers, all in support of Michigan Opera Theatre. This year's event will run from 7:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m., Friday, June 8, at the Detroit Opera House (1526 Broadway, Detroit).
Now in its 13th year, BravoBravo! 2012 celebrates carioca-style, as the opulent Detroit Opera House transforms into an exotic Carnivale celebration, including the famed Copa Cabana and sexy girls from Ipanema. Three of Detroit's most involved young professionals co-chair this year's event: Dominic Arellano, Amy Kaminsky and Walter Pilon.
Events like BravoBravo! are vital to the continued success and daily operation of Michigan Opera Theatre. The sell-out event annually draws crowds of more than 2,000 young professionals, and last year raised $185,000 for the arts institution. Since its inception, BravoBravo! has raised more than $1 million and is a crucial fundraising effort for the organization.
Tickets start at $90 in advance and go on sale April 2. Tickets are available at the Detroit Opera House box office, by phone at (313) 237-SING, or online at www.BravoBravo.org. The event is expected to sell out. Attendees must be 21 or older.
