Featuring the elaborate costumery of the Faux Royalty of the Region in a Tableau, which is part of the tradition of both New Orleans and Mobile, the Arepo Ball adds sumptuous food and music, both pop and opera, to fashion an evening swathed in feathers and made dangerous by those who mask.

The Shreveport Opera, for which it is a benefit, says it is the only ball in town that honors all royalty from all the region's krewes. After the Tableau, dance to the music of the Premiers, says the Spt Opera Box Office.
