New York City Opera Act 4 Free Concerts

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

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.

Laura S - Spendthrift Scribe

Laura S, left the "sixth borough" three years ago to settle in Brooklyn. After working at some daily rags, she now does writing on the side but still eats more Ramen then necessary. When she's not moving residences every 6 months, eating her way through every neighborhood, and trying every microbrew known to man, she is unsuccessfully rediscovering home economics. With her binging days behind her, she's now exploring new projects and rediscovering the city that she loves (although is still prone to sliding on her knees during a Prince karaoke set).
