Omaha World-Herald

Paxton & Vierling Steel Co. will be the site of the 2016 Opera Omaha gala, opera officials announced Thursday.

The unconventional venue is part of a recent tradition for the opera company. Last year’s gala was in a closed-off wing at Crossroads Mall; the year before, it was at Omar Baking Co.

The north bay of the operating steel factory will be cleared for the March 12 event, said Katie Broman, Opera Omaha’s director of marketing and public relations.
