Join us for an unforgettable evening in celebration of Des Moines Metro Opera and the opening of its 46th Summer Festival! Take a stroll down the red carpet, sip champagne or our exclusive specialty cocktail and enjoy an exquisite three-course meal while listening to world-class entertainment from DMMO's principal artists. After dinner, sit back and enjoy the opening night performance of Johann Strauss II's delightful and bubbly confection, Die Fledermaus, which makes its triumphant return to DMMO afgter an absence of nearly 30 years!
