|Subject:||Opera tix for sale...|
I have two pairs of opera tix for sale -- Abduction from the Seraglio on this coming Sunday 10/11 (a quite good Mozart comedy, with ahead-of-its-time portrayals of strong women, and a rather sophisticated, humane Turkish pasha) and Otello on Sunday 11/8 (Verdi adaptation of Shakespeare, one of the all-time greats of Italian grand opera). Feel free to pass the craigslist links to any friends who might be interested. I'm willing to consider a discount for friends who are into opera but don't get to go very often.
Also, if you can afford full price just for yourself for the Seraglio ticket, I've been going back and forth on whether I want to sell that one. I've seen it once before, but I really liked it and wouldn't mind seeing it again. Otello I've seen half-a-dozen times, and while I'd happily go again if I had income, I can't really afford it at the moment. I've been maintaining my subscriber status for the last couple years so that once I have money again I won't have to start out from lousy seats again and gradually trade into the nice ones; but I've been selling off half or more of my tickets...
Also, I have tix for Salome on 10/18. I've never seen that one, but it's Richard Strauss (the student of Wagner who wrote Also Sprach Zarathustra, a.k.a. the music from the film "2001") working from a play by Oscar Wilde, based on one of the Biblical stories that is most packed with sex, intrigue, and violence. Am really looking forward to it; I think Xta is waffling on whether she wants to see it. If interested in joining, send email; I'll let you know if Xta decides she doesn't want to go.
