Sometimes you can’t get enough of the opera, and sometimes you just want a taste. This weekend, you can have both, and the taste won’t just be delicious to your ears. On Saturday, the Minnesota Opera Center plays host to Opera Tasting 2011: Pouring out from the Heavens, where opera lovers will get the chance to hear the sweet sounds of the Minnesota Opera’s Resident Artists while sipping through a five-course wine tasting from Solo Vino and delicious pairings from Toast Wine Bar & Cafe. Tickets are $50 for Tempo members and $75 for non-members. 620 N. 1st St., Mpls., 612-333-2700. For more information, visit the Opera Tasting event page.
