Misty Copeland, the first African American Female Principal Dancer with the American Ballet Theatre, stunned the audience honoring Maggie Allesee at the Michigan Opera Ball at the Detroit Opera Theatre in Detroit, MI on Saturday October 3, 2015.
We were thrilled to be invited by the evening’s Honoree, our Patron and Collector, Maggie Allesee. Maggie has been an early and steady supporter of our art and recently served as Co-Chair for our fall Art Exhibition.
Maggie has been a stalwart supporter of the arts in the Detroit community for years. The Detroit Opera House is one of six charities to have honored her this year alone.
Tux was rented by Ted and Linda wore a vintage dress she’s had since before Ted was born. Maggie looked lovely and together with 500 guests the evening was extraordinary including with a send off of pizza and cookies.
