Raise your hand if you love opera!

Okay, now raise your hand if you don’t really love opera, but you love impressing your Facebook/Twitter friends with your access to awesome cultural events (especially the out-of-towners)!

Either category will love this deal: $25 seats for weekend performances the Met (The Metropolitan Opera if that wasn’t obvious)! Here’s how it works….

• Mondays 10am-midnight, you can select performances you want to see that weekend.
• On Tuesdays at noon, a lottery is held, and the winners’ and waitlist names are posted. Winners’ tickets are available for purchase at that point.
• By Wednesday at 5pm, winners must purchase tickets or else, it’s open season for the waitlist (first come, first served).
• By Thursday at 5pm, waitlisters must purchase their tickets

Things you should know: the tickets are random, but they’re actual seats in the Orchestra and Grand Tier (usually $200), not standing-room. And the Weekend Rush Tickets will be available through the end of the 2010-11 season. There are also Weekday Rush Tickets for $20.

Here’s the Met’s website with the details: http://www.metoperafamily.org/metopera/contests/drawing/index.aspx

PS, they’re doing Bizet’s Carmen in November. If you have ears, you’ll recognize songs from this opera. And if one of you wins tickets, you’d damn well better take me!
