Metropolitan Opera in HD---Free Pair of Tickets

Did you know that local theaters broadcast and show a number of Metropolitan opera performances?  They are broadcast live during the season, with encore performances on the weekend.  This summer there are six encores of Met operas:

To buy tickets ahead of time:!carmen

Note that there several theatres around metro Atlanta showing it, including in Chamblee and Perimeter.

We have been offered a pair of free tickets to the North Point Alpharetta showing.  I will choose a winner at random from the correct answer of the following trivia question:


What opera takes place in ancient Egypt?


Answer privately when you RSVP---but depending on the number of people who are interested in the free tickets, I may focus on those people who have already attended a number of events and don't have m/any No Shows.  The tickets will be mailed to you, so make sure you will really use them!  I will let you know Monday morning the 15th if you have won and will need you to reply back immediately with your e-mail so the tickets can be Fed-Exed to you.


I won't be attending.  You need to figure out when/where to meet up among yourselves.

    Thank you for letting me know about this event. If you saw 2 young boys and an adult, that was us. I took them in for Opera for their first time and they enjoyed it. I told my father who is a classical music conductor about it and he was over the moon that I brought the boys.
    Thank you again.
