However, “POPera: Simply Irresistible” comes with a twist: this gala occurs with stars in the sky and stars on the stage, surrounded by the picturesque backdrop of the Lake and Island of Bradley Fair; an event and setting like nowhere else in the nation.

“POPera” will be a free to the public event, so feel free to bring a lawn chair or blanket and prepare for a wonderful evening under the Kansas sky. A limited number of Reserved Seating tickets are available for $35 each, which include a provided chair. Or, if you prefer to be wined and dined, the VIP Dinner and Performance Package is available, including a three-course dinner with exclusive seating for dinner and the performance on the patio at Newport Grill, all for $150 per person or a table of eight for $1,000, a portion of which is tax deductible.
