Enjoy dinner at Lounge Parvi before the performances

Our Art&Dinner menus will beautifully complement your night at the opera or ballet, as each delicious menu has been inspired by the work being performed. Starting at 5 p.m. on the day of the performance, the dinner is served to the table or laid out as a buffet in the Lounge Parvi. Special dietary options are also available when ordered in advance. What’s more, we’ve crafted an ideal wine selection to accompany your chosen menu. Ice water is included in the menus.

During the autumn 2022 season, Art&Dinner menus are available before the performances of The Magic Flute, Innocence, Romeo and Juliet and CircOpera 2.0. Please see the menus below. Menus for spring 2023 performances will be on sale 4 Oct at noon. We reserve the right to make changes. Menus and wine selections do not include tickets to the evening’s performance.

Please use the Töölönlahti entrance when arriving to dinner.
