Super Heroes!

The Ballet Ball is always the ultimate dance party — and this year’s “Heroes, Gods and Stars” bash was no exception. Richard Flowers of The Events Company transformed a tented space outside of the Houston Ballet Center for Dance into a custom ballroom filled with gold and gilded details, a nod to the company’s production of Sylvia, a show rooted in Greek mythology. A silent auction touted items like a trip to Aspen and gems from Tenenbaum Jewelers, contributing to the evening’s overall till of $1.6 million — and making this year’s ball the most successful ever. The crowd of 500-plus enjoyed a dinner of sea bass with pesto (made with olives from the Greek island of Thassos!) and orzo risotto with lobster, then joined The Big Beyond on the dance floor.
