MET Carmen Bargain

Post by maestrob » Sat Jan 26, 2019 11:09 am

I'm not sure how many of us New York area residents are eligible for this promotion, but I just received a mailer offering $80 tickets at the MET for 3 performances of Carmen: Jan. 29, Feb. 5 & 8.
To get tickets, AARP members, guests and all those over 50 should go to metopera.org/Carmen80, enter the code Carmen80 to redeem and get your discount tickets.

Includes a glass of sparkling wine and a pre-performance event.

If you prefer a cinematic experience, the dates are Feb. 6 & 9 at participating theatres. Go to fathomevents.com/carmen and enter the promo code CARMENCORE to receive a 30% discount at participating theatres in the NY area.

Hope this works for someone! 8)

Don't know Margaine, but Alagna has been an excellent Don Jose, and I admire Louis Langree very much. He works well with singers, and is the conductor on this superb disc by Elina Garanca:
