People & Places: Tulsa Ballet fundraiser evokes spirit of 1920s Paris.
Maybe we’ll catch a glimpse of Coco Chanel, F. Scott Fitzgerald or Pablo Picasso – just a quick impression at the corner of the eye. A trick of the light, perhaps. But our dream of being in the Paris of the 1920s will be realized when Tulsa Ballet hosts Icons and Idols at 6:30 p.m. March 16 at the Tulsa Convention Center.
The evening will take us back to the early 20th century when members of the Ballet Russe and the most influential artists, designers and musicians from that era were traveling the world.
In addition to the sights and sounds of Paris of a by-gone age, the evening will also offer gourmet dining, a chance to bid on luxury auction items and unique experiences. At 9 p.m., guests will join friends from Tulsa Ballet to dance the night away with live music at the Icons and Idols after party.
The exceptional event will have it all – live entertainment and an atmosphere of absolute elegance.
The black tie evening will also be the perfect occasion to honor Tulsa Ballet founders, Roman Jasinski and Moscelyne Larkin, two original members of the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo. As Icons and Idols commemorates the golden era of the past, it will also support Tulsa Ballet’s impact on our community’s future.
Jackie Kouri and Gary Paxton are event chairman and Mollie Williford is honorary chairwoman.
The auction and raffle items at Tulsa Ballet Icons and Idols are available for preview and purchase on the same website.
