2018 Opera Gala

Friday, November 16, 2018
Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza

Event Co-Chairs: Flavia Bastos & Liz Grubow


Celebrating opera, fashion, and love

On Friday, November 16, join us for an elevated evening of fashion, opera, and love of all forms at the elegant Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza. Guests will experience a unique collaboration of live opera music and a fashion show, featuring never-before-seen works by student designers from University of Cincinnati's DAAP. Feel like one of the divas and have your picture taken by a professional fashion photographer. Enjoy the stunning backdrop of the historic Hall of Mirrors while you sip cocktails and await the fashion show. The night will continue with dinner in the Pavilion and an after party on the runway.

Use your great taste in fashion to support the opera!
Cincinnati Opera is once again partnering with Everything But the House (EBTH), a premier online auction organization, to auction items donated by you. This year we are collecting designer clothing, jewelry, antiques, and other valuable items to create a truly inspired collection. The auction will be live for bidding on the EBTH website November 9 through 18, and all proceeds will support Cincinnati Opera's mainstage and community programs. If you have items valued at $150 or more that you wish to donate, click here to get started.
