UPDATE: Congratulations to our winner, Gabby Guagliaone.
ORIGINAL POST: How would you like to hear Renee Fleming, one of the most beloved opera singers in the world, sing live with the Fresno Grand Opera Orchestra? Now’s your chance. We’re giving away two ORCHESTRA seats to the most prestigious classical-music event of the year. Fleming performs 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Saroyan Theatre.
To enter, leave a comment below telling us why you want to hear Ms. Fleming sing. If you have a favorite opera role or album of hers, you can share that with readers. Don’t feel intimidated if you don’t know her repertoire — simply saying you want to hear her acclaimed voice is just fine. We’ll pick our winner at random.
These are great seats (Row Q center) that would normally go for $97.50 each, so this is quite the giveaway.
Deadline to enter is 10 a.m. Monday. These are paper tickets, so you’ll need to be able to pick them up at The Bee’s front counter by 5 p.m. Tuesday. We’ll notify the winner via e-mail, so please leave a valid e-mail address and please check it by 11 a.m. Monday. (We reserve the right to pick another winner if we don’t hear back from you.) You’re ineligible if you’ve won something from us in the past 30 days. No multiple entries allowed. Complete rules after the jump.
