Operas set in SpainCarmen, Il Barbiere di Siviglia, Don Giovanniare the exotic backdrop for a tapas fiesta. The far-flung locales of Puccinis La Bohme, Madama Butterfly, Tosca, and Turandot inspire an eclectic international buffet. A rustic Italian dinner is orchestrated to the strains of Verdis Traviata. And Gilbert and Sullivan, of course, provide the overture for an English-style pub supper.

Its more than 125 recipes include appetizers and hors doeuvres; soup, salad, fish, and pasta courses; main dishes; sweets; and thematic aperitif, cocktail, and after-dinner drinks.
