GIVEAWAY: Pair of tickets to “Hansel and Gretel”

2 Dec

*Note: THIS CONTEST HAS EXPIRED* But you’re still allowed to read it 🙂

Get festive with a little culture — for FREE! I’m giving away a pair of tickets to Hansel and Gretel at the world-famous (and right in our own backyard!) Met Opera House on Thursday, Dec. 17 at 8 p.m. Take a date or invite a new friend — this is a great way to soak up the holiday season!

A scene from Act II with Alice Coote as Hansel and Christine Schäfer as Gretel.

Rules for entry (DEADLINE IS FRIDAY, DEC. 11):

• 1 entry just for completing this form.
• 1 entry for following NewNewYorkers on Twitter.
• 1 entry entry for posting about this giveaway on your blog.
• 1 entry for tweeting this giveaway and sending it my way (@NewNYers)

Even if you don’t win, seats are available for as low as $20. You’d normally have to shell out around $90 for a Met performance! GOOD LUCK, KIDS!

About the show (photo at right):

Haunting, charming, and a little wicked, the Met’s production returns as the season’s special holiday presentation for families and the young at heart. Miah Persson and Angelika Kirchschlager are the lost siblings. Philip Langridge reprises his outlandish portrayal of the Witch in Humperdinck’s take on the Brothers Grimm fairy tale. Sung in English and conducted by Fabio Luisi. Approximate running time 2 hrs. 15 min.
