Nsider: La Bella Notte Auction Party

The Nashville Opera kicked off La Bella Notte season even earlier this year with a fun-filled auction party at the Noah Liff Opera Center. Co-chairs Stephanie Hart, Baxter Matthews, and Bryan and Hailey Stone planned a lively evening for guests to peruse the goodies up for grabs at the black-tie gala. While nibbling on snacks from Crave Catering, revelers scoped out the auction, which included a dove hunting trip to Uruguay, a custom sketch by international portrait artist Seth Haverkamp and dinner for eight with Johnny Haffner.Photographs by Anna Loughead
