Experience the magic of Operatinis! These captivating events showcasing the talented cast of Opera Idaho productions. Immerse yourself in an enchanting evening as these extraordinary artists serenade you with their cherished musical theatre and opera pieces.

The name “Operatini” perfectly captures the essence of our events, blending the elegance of opera with the allure of a martini. While the inaugural Operatinis featured a unique martini inspired by the upcoming production, we have since expanded our horizons to explore delicious cocktails that perfectly capture the theme’s essence, with the occasional martini remaining a special highlight.

Early Operatini – door opens at 5:30 pm for dinner, performance starts around 6:15 pm.

Late Operatini – door opens at 8:00 pm for dinner, performance starts around 8:30 pm.

Every opera deserves to be celebrated and what better way to do so than with a finely crafted martini? This is your chance to experience opera in a relaxed setting with great food and a specially designed martini based on the theme. 


The first event called Operatini was in conjunction with The Pirates of Penzance on Wednesday, September 28, 2011 at Café de Paris and was called “The British Are Coming” — the next one, in conjunction with La bohème was called “Operatini: Puccini Martini Blast” … it and the following “A Touch of Silver” were at Beside Bardenay. The first one at The Sapphire Room took place on February 5, 2015, in conjunction with Evgeny Onegin.
