Win tickets to Fresno Grand Opera’s ‘Candide’


Fresno Grand Opera will present its final production of the 2012-13 season this weekend with Leonard Bernstein’s “Candide.” This comic show-stopper blends operetta, musical and grand opera traditions. Two of the best-known songs are “Glitter and Be Gay” and “Make Our Garden Grow.”

I’m giving away two tickets to Friday’s 8 p.m. opening night performance at the Shaghoian Concert Hall. To enter, leave a comment on this post. If you’d like, tell us what you think of the Shaghoian and its acoustics — or why you’d like to see a production there for the first time.

The deadline for entry is 10 a.m. Wednesday. I’ll be informing winners by email Wednesday morning, so please check at that time. If you win, you’ll be able to pick your tickets at Will Call. Rules are on the jump.

Recipients will be notified by e-mail at the end of each giveaway period. No substitutions or transfer of winners/prizes. Prizes are not redeemable for cash. Some prizes may have due dates for redemption/use. Employees and immediate family of The Fresno Bee, and any/all of the participating giveaway sponsors, are not eligible to win. By accepting a giveaway, recipient consents to allow the use of his/her name and/or photograph for advertising or similar promotions without further compensation. Winner releases all sponsors of liability regarding use and enjoyment of the prizes. Tax liabilities and insurance, if any, are sole responsibility of the winner. No purchase necessary to win.
