On October 21, 2022, OperaLex celebrated ENCORE! at the beautiful new Campbell House ballroom and experienced “An Evening in Paris – C’est Magnifique!”. A night of the best in food and wine, Encore featured the talent of the incredible singers of the University of Kentucky Opera Theatre program, accompanied by the best of the UK Orchestra.

Throughout the evening, guests had a taste of both Grand Night and recent UK opera productions. They also had the opportunity to bid on some fantastic auction items presented especially for OperaLex and the UK Opera program. Adding to this year’s event, the evening concluded with dancing to the music of a UK dance band from the renowned UK Jazz program.

Take a look at all the fun! (and plan now to attend Encore 2023!)
