New York Ticket Giveaway to the Metropolitan Opera!

Sign up for the best newsletter EVER!

Think opera is just for rich biddies?  Well think again!  We have three pairs of seats to give away for FREE to see Hansel and Gretel at the Metropolitan Opera. The show is on December 17th at 8 PM.

Why would you care about Hansel and Gretel, you ask?  Well, the Met boasts that it is 'œhaunting, charming, and a little wicked.'  Sounds right up your alley.  Miah Persson and Angelika Kirchschlager are the lost siblings, and Philip Langridge reprises his outlandish portrayal of the Witch in Humperdinck’s take on the Brother Grimm fairy tale.  Don’t miss the grotesque masks and costumes, and fear not the subtitles, for Hansel and Gretel is sung in English.

To win, email us at  Winners will be chosen randomly.  You’ll also be added to the email list unless you explicitly ask not to be.  But what kind of sucker wouldn’t want to be?

Even if you don’t win our giveaway, the Met is offering tickets right now for as low as $20.  (Considering that the lowest prices are usually around $90, either Hansel and Gretel sucks or the Met is sharing some holiday cheer.  I chose to think that it’s the latter.)  Hansel and Gretel runs about 2hrs and 15min.

Impress your date with tickets to the world’s greatest venue for voices, and if they raise any eyebrows at those ripped jeans or neon kicks, just smile your badass smile and make way to your seats.

Danielle was raised by a pack of coyotes in the Los Angeles hills. Since arriving in NY in 2001, she has had any number of strange jobs, including back-up singing for JELVIS (the Jewish Elvis), starting the non-profit LYDIA, and writing political cabarets. A huge advocate for travel as a way of life, you can find her at the Brooklyn Public Library when her bank account is empty, fantasizing about where to head off to next.
