Why you should go. The season finale of the Opera Party series will celebrate Pride Week with co-host and performance artist, author and cabaret artist Justin Vivian Bond for a searing romp with tenor and force-of-nature Anthony Dean Griffey, a surreal confection by cake-maker Elizabeth Hodes and enticing opportunities to show off just how much pride you feel.
