Opera + Food! Taste of Opera Returns
We like opera. We like food, too. In fact, these two things are in our top five favorite things ever. So we're very pleased to announce our Taste of Opera events for 2012.
Taste of Opera sprung up during a conversation one hungry meeting when we were trying to make opera more accessible and casual. Our stomach grumbled. We suggested ending the meeting early for lunch. And then someone else suggested lunch and opera, and well, the idea snowballed from there.
Taste of Opera is prix fixe meal. You get an appetizer, an entree, and a dessert. You also get a glass of wine - hey, another one of our favorite things. The price also covers tax and tip. You also get a casual introduction to one of our operas by Dr. Nic Reveles, our Director of Education. And if that's still not enough we also line up a secondary speaker for the evening who discusses a related but offbeat topic (we had someone talk about wind energy for Don Quixote a few years back, had a Flamenco instructor for Carmen last season, etc...). Most important of all, you get to sit with like-minded opera fans such as yourself.
