The Events Company


The Engagement Party

Now that Mozart's famed "Figaro" has popped the question to his "Susanna" and she's said "yes," there's only one more thing to do to ensure that the Syracuse Opera production of "The Marriage of Figaro" will be the wedding of the year - throw them an Engagement Party!


The Stage Set:

Music wafts through the lobby as guests aregreeted with a signature cocktail. As guests enter the Tiffany Ballroom they find themselves in a chic cocktail setting with the sounds of Maria DeSantis Jazz.


The Characters:

Tonight the celebration is for Figaro (sung by bass-baritone Thomas Forde) and Susanna (sung by soprano Amanda Pabyan) but it takes a cast of characters (our team of event professionals) to throw a great party. Wait until you see what they have planned to surprise and wow you. 


The Story Line

Guests enjoy a hip cocktail party with a selection of hand crafted hors d'oeurves and tapas created by Chef John Grainger, fabulous desserts from Sweet Indulgence

Desserts and even more sweet surprises that you'll have to come to the party to find 

out about. 


A party is never complete without entertainment and here the entertainment is non-stop from the musical variety to the interactive variety, like Photo-booth style photos and much more - but you'll have to come to the party to discover what we have up our sleeve. 


The Swag:

Don't leave empty handed! As our thanks to you, take home a swag bag filled with treats and special offers.
