About the Dinners and Pre-show talks

Feed your body and your mind with dinner and the pre-show talk! Opera Memphis' preferred caterers will prepare a different menu for each dinner, and the Festival Lounge bar will provide wine, beer, and specialty cocktails. While you dine with fellow opera-goers, a member of the Opera Memphis staff will give you a behind-the-scenes look at the evening's opera. Get some helpful background to enrich your viewing and listening experience for that evening. 

Opera Prelude Dinners are a can't miss feature of the Midtown Opera Festival, and diners enjoy early seating for the Opera Prelude Pre-Show Talk! 

Not so hungry? Feel free to join us just for the talks—no ticket or reservation required.
