Somtow returned from Thailand for the event, and members went in a group to opening night of the premiere, ticket price being included in the membership fee. Members also received signed limited-edition librettos. Other events included a group excursion for Friday fish fry, a post-show party with the cast, and a talk by Somtow with a backstage tour to see the massive dragon puppet used in the opera.
Sponsored by the Fannish Educational Network, it was conceived as a one-off, and organized by Dick and Leah Smith. The venues were the Hilton Milwaukee City Center and the Skylight Music Theatre. About 65 people attended.
