Gala: A Moveable Feast for the Hudson Opera House

On Saturday evening, a colorful crowd—writers, artists, composers, academics, and performers of every stripe—gathered at the Hudson Opera House for cocktails and chatter, then scattered in twenty-seven different directions to attend dinner parties in nearby private homes.  The event raised funds for the non-profit Hudson Opera House, Inc., which since 1992, has restored the venerable nineteenth-century “opera house” (a euphemism, in its day, for a grand building housing municipal offices and an auditorium), and has created a new role for it in the city’s civic life, as well.  Each year, HOH hosts upwards of 1,000 programs and events, most of them free.
