Cincinnati Opera will transport guests to the Eternal City with its annual Opera Ball.

The event and its theme — “To Rome With Love” — were inspired by the new production of Puccini’s “Tosca.” 
The evening will feature a gourmet dinner by chef Todd Kelly, live auction, fine wines, and entertainment by tenor Aaron Blake.

At 9:30 p.m., the action will shift to an after-party featuring a live band, Swampthang, and dancing. Cincinnati Opera president Murray Sinclaire Jr. will be honored at the event. 

Opera Ball co-chairs are Jacqueline M. Mack and Mona Kerstine. 
Tickets for the ball start at $250; after-party tickets are $25 in advance, $30 at the door.
