Experience the height of luxury in the heart of the Cathedral Quarter as the delights of both Northern Ireland Opera and The Merchant Hotel create an evening designed to ignite all of your senses. A specially curated evening of fine dining intertwined with some of the most exquisite opera performed live throughout the night. From the moment you arrive at The Merchant you will be greeted with gentle musical overtones. Enjoy sipping your glass of bubbles and begin your culinary journey with a selection of chef’s canapes before you are called to dinner in The Rita Duffy Suite with fanfare and pageantry.
During the evening you will be entertained by four of the leading lights of opera in Northern Ireland. Experience sublime accompaniment with live playing on a stunning grand piano as the singers perform some of the most loved arias, duets and ensembles in between each of your six courses. This Opera Gala Dinner is not to be missed and we hope you can join us to experience this unique culinary and musical fusion.
*Please note, on the evening you will be seated with other guests at tables of 10 in the Rita Duffy Suite. Unfortunately we do not have the capacity to seat groups separately.
