It’s time to ditch the long gloves, fancy dress and binoculars (well you might still need those) when it comes to going to the opera. It’s one of those highbrow things that always seemed out of reach, but with the help of L Magazine and the New York City Opera Company, you can now score tickets to the opera at the same cost as Chinese takeout.
Starting tonight through April 28, L Magazine will be hosting Act 4, an “after-party” show that ties into each opera performance. When you buy opera tickets you get free access to their post-show performances including complimentary cocktails. And because it’s L Magazine, think more up and coming bands than a string ensemble. Tonight’s post show includes a performance by Brooklyn darlings, Beach Fossils.
Get your tickets for tonight’s performances of “The Elixer of Love” HERE, which is a modern retelling of the 1832 Italian opera, which now takes place in the 1950′s Southwest. I think this is the only time you can go to the opera and still have enough money to score dinner for you and your date. See even broke-asses can be fancy sometimes.
