Come see for yourself! The Fallen Woman, Verdi’s classic opera La Traviata is being broadcast live from the Met! You can now enjoy some magnificent culture from the “cheap seats” across theater screens far and wide. Let’s face it, we don’t all live in New York, and we can’t all afford to fly in to catch an amazing show. So, it is a real treat that Fathom Events is offering this great opportunity to people outside of New York.
And, we have two free passes to give to one lucky FilmGrouch.com subscriber who can answer this question:
What famous French courtesan is Violetta based upon?
The first subscriber to answer correctly in the comments below will win the passes for this Saturday’s performance, to be screened live at the Cinemark Palace 20 at 12:55 pm.
And if you don’t win the tickets, you can purchase them here, and find your own theater. Let a little culture in your life, even I enjoy a good opera every once in awhile. Just don’t let my Marine buddies know.
