Waltz into winter this Saturday, courtesy of Cincinnati Opera’s annual Opera Ball, “An Evening Under the Tsars,” a Russian-themed gala inspired by Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin, scheduled for July 2011. The annual fundraiser is always a lavish extravaganza and this year, the festivities move to the Netherland Plaza’s iconic Hall of Mirrors, transformed into the royal cold-weather residence known as the Winter Palace. Orchids executive chef Todd Kelly oversees the menu that will undoubtedly include caviar, blini and iced Stoli. Pirouettes and high-energy folk dance take the stage with Cincinnati Ballet and Barynya Ensemble, a critically acclaimed Russian dance and music group.

The after-party kicks in at 10:30 p.m. with DJ Thad on the turntables for dancing until 2 a.m.
