A Fête for Pirouettes

| August 27, 2012 | Parties

THE PARTY Chicago’s influential civic and philanthropic leaders were among the lucky ticket holders as the Paris Opera Ballet took the stage at the Harris Theater for Music and Dance. The engagement marked the beginning of the pretigious dance company’s U.S. tour, which also included stops in New York City and Washington, D.C.
THE PLAYERS Seen at the post-performance gala were some of the city’s biggest supporters of the arts, among them King and Caryn Harris (presenting sponsors and gala chairs), John and Alexandra Nichols (presenting sponsors and gala chairs), Bill Kurtis and Donna LaPietra, Abby O’Neil, Henri Barguirdjian (president and CEO of Graff), Francie Comer, Mellody Hobson and many more.
