EBTH Online Auction

Cincinnati Opera is partnering with Everything But The House (EBTH), a premier online auction organization, to auction items donated by you!

These items will be sold through an EBTH online auction November 11-20, and proceeds generated will benefit Cincinnati Opera's acclaimed mainstage productions, as well as our education and community programs.
