Join Us This Thursday for
Operatini: A Smooth Finish


To heighten the anticipation for our season opener, Falstaff, join us this Thursday at Beside Bardenay for an “Operatini Party.” 

We've tapped into well-known master mixologist, Brian Livesay of Boise's Matador restaurant, to create a special martini just for Opera Idaho based on Verdi's Falstaff, and we think you'll agree that what he's come up with is quite impressive! 

Cowardly, witty, craven, gluttonous, brilliant, amoral; Falstaff is one of English literature's greatest creations and the inspiration for our featured cocktail.  Based on Falstaff's line, "Da fallo nasce fallo e allor," (One sin leads to another), we present, the 'Da Fallo' for your tasting pleasure.

The "Da Fallo" martini will be served the entire evening of the party to celebrate quality opera and quality mixology in Idaho.  We look forward to seeing you there!

Thursday, October 18, 2012
Tickets: $20.00*, 2 for $35.00 *
*price includes appetizers, but not martinis
Time: 6:00pm - 8:00pm

Thank You for Another Successful Auction of Arias!

On Friday, October 12, 2012 we held our annual Auction of Arias fundraiser.  What a delightful evening!  Between the amazing food, wine, friends, silent auction items, and most notably, the singers and their beautiful arias, we all came away thoroughly entertained.  You might say we were as happy as Falstaff would be if he were alone in a pub full of married ladies!

We’d like to thank all of our wonderful volunteers and patrons who made the event possible.  We took in approximately $20,000, and met our goal for the evening.  It is through events like Auction of Arias and the constant support of our loyal patrons that we are able to bring such high quality opera to Boise.  Thank you for your support!
