Taste of Opera is an opera-going experience with a four-course Brunch Buffet at The Woman's Club of Minneapolis, and relaxed conversation featuring special guests from the world of opera. Join us for an afternoon of fine food and casual conversation featuring people from the creative team of Don Pasquale, followed by the mainstage performance at the Ordway. Whether you’re new to opera, or a dedicated enthusiast, this all-inclusive day out is a welcome break from the routine — leave the logistics to us!
Take a trip with Minnesota Opera back to the Golden Age of Hollywood for this uproarious, screwball comedy—perfect for seasoned operagoers and newcomers alike. It’s the 1950s and the miserly aristocrat Don Pasquale is a silent movie star grappling with the problems and possibilities of the modern technicolor world. In the end, the old curmudgeon learns his lesson and love rules the day. You’ll be delighted by this fresh, fun, and lively production. Be sure to keep your autograph books handy. You just might see a few of your favorite stars of the silver screen like John Wayne, Elvis Presley and Lucille Ball. Sung in Italian with English translations projected above the stage.
