If you still think of Cincinnati as just another Ohio city that starts with the letter C, we’ve got news. The state’s third largest metropolis is now home to a flourishing arts neighborhood, trendy new restaurants, and a sparkling new public park – not to mention venerable cultural institutions like Cincinnati Opera, which is the second oldest opera company in the country. Here’s how to get the absolute best of the city without breaking your budget…

High Culture, Low Prices

If the upcoming 2014-2015 season lineup is any indication – September’s gala opening performance will feature three Beethoven works led by Lang Lang, followed by subsequent evenings honoring Debussy, Stravinsky, Chopin, and more – the Cleveland Symphony Orchestra is the city’s premiere cultural institution. Tickets for the orchestra’s pops concerts start at $25, but for $12, you can enjoy a more traditional symphonic program.

The CSO happens to share a home (namely, the 136-year-old Music Hall) with the equally-esteemed Cincinnati Opera, which celebrates its 75th anniversary in 2014. The upcoming season, which begins June 12, will include such highlights as Carmen, La Calisto, and Madame Butterfly. Of particular note is Opera In the Park, which kicks off the season with a free, outdoor performance in Washington Park.
