On September 15, a veritable who's who of political, social, and cultural leaders attended Wolf Trap's highly prestigious 2007 ball – “Discovering Greece” – for an evening of dinner and dancing on the Filene Center Stage at the Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts in Vienna, VA. This year, the Wolf Trap Foundation for the Performing Arts partnered with Ambassador Alexandros Mallias and the Greek Embassy to support and further develop Wolf Trap's local, national and global education programs, while celebrating the rich history, culture, and beauty of Greece.

Wolf Trap's relationship with Greece is rooted in a series of international arts and education exchanges with the Municipality of Sparta and the Municipality of Athens. Through these exchanges and collaborations, Wolf Trap aided in implementing arts education projects in the kindergartens of Sparta and Athens to expose Greek teachers and students to innovative pedagogical activities and learning processes.

This year's Ball was co-chaired by Wolf Trap Associates Board of Directors member Michael Rebibo and his wife Cynthia, in conjunction with Board of Directors member Jacqueline Indelicarto, along with her husband, Thomas. Wolf Trap officials anticipate raising more than 500,000 dollars for Wolf Trap's Education Programs, including the Wolf Trap Opera Company and the Wolf Trap Institute for Early Learning Through the Arts.
