Need Something To Do Thursday?

How do you reinvigorate a dusty art form? Drape it in an air of sophistication and bathe it in artisan cocktails. This nearly infallible combination has rescued opera from binoculars on a stick and turned it into something suitable for the exploits of Dos Equis' Most Interesting Man in the World.

Boiseans don't have to hitch yacht rides to Monaco to get in on the action. Operatini is hitting Beside Bardenay from 6-8 p.m.

Singers from Opera Idaho will perform arias from Pagliacci, Ruggero Leoncavallo's classic play-within-a-play about a cuckold, while mixmaster Sean Earley of Bardenay creates signature Pagliacci martinis. A full performance of Pagliacci will take place at the Egyptian Theatre Friday, March 1, at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, March 3, at 2:30 p.m.

Operatini tickets are $20 each, or two for $35. The price includes appetizers, but martinis are sold separately.
