Opera Omaha Stages Annual Benefit on Floor of Working Steel Factory

Omaha World-Herald

Glittering arts patrons will have to navigate some uneven concrete floors and maneuver past giant spools of steel to get to a fundraising gala tonight.

As they approach the banquet hall, they’ll walk under cranes that can lift up to 45 tons. And where there would be fancy wallpaper and chandeliers in a traditional setting, they’ll see support beams and industrial lights.
