If you enjoyed the Season of Savings Broadway Giveaway on FrugalNYC, you're likely to enjoy our Metropolitan Opera Giveaway!  I may be attending as well, courtesy of our sponsor.

The winner of this giveaway will be attending a performance of Hansel and Gretel, which opens on December 14, at the Metropolitan Opera. (Directions here).  Find more information on the Hansel and Gretel Opera.

Metropolitan Opera House

The Metropolitan Opera, now in its 126th season, is a vibrant home for the most creative and talented artists, including singers, conductors, composers, orchestra musicians, stage directors, designers, visual artists, choreographers, and dancers from around the world. Known as the venue for the world’s greatest voices, the Met has been under the musical direction of James Levine since 1976. Levine is credited with having created one of opera’s finest orchestras and choruses.

Check back here for more information soon.


A Pair of Orchestra section Tickets to the December 17th performance of Hansel and Gretel (Yes, it's in English!)

Approximate running time 2 hrs. 15 min.
Haunting, charming, and a little wicked, the Met’s production returns as the season’s special holiday presentation for families. Miah Persson and Angelika Kirchschlager are the lost siblings. Philip Langridge reprises his outlandish portrayal of the Witch in Humperdinck’s take on the Brothers Grimm fairy tale. Sung in English and conducted by Fabio Luisi.

This is an awesome idea--doing a giveaway is definitely a great way to get 20somethings excited about opera. I was just complaining to a friend that Met prices are too steep for me, but $20 really isn't bad.

Keep up the good work!
