‘Love Potion No. 9’

Opera Las Vegas celebrated its 2019 gala, “Love Potion No. 9,” on Feb. 6 at the La Sirena Ballroom in Green Valley Ranch. Fine cuisine, a steady flow of champagne and a mix of fast-paced popular and operatic delights put together by celebrated musician Keith Thompson entertained guests throughout the evening. A selection of silent auction items also were up for bidding, including a time share on a Greek beach. Jerry Nadal, senior executive with Cirque du Soleil, was the evening’s honoree with Opera Las Vegas’ first-ever Excellence in Arts award.
