The Fresno Philharmonic is going all-Wagner on Sunday, and I have four pairs of tickets to give away to Beehive readers. “Ride of the Valkyries: Wagner’s Greatest Hits” will feature selections from some of Wagner’s most beloved operas, including “Die Meistersinger von Nurnberg,” “Rienzi,” “Gotterdammerung,” “Tannhauser,” “Lohengrin” and “Die Walkure.” The orchestra, under the baton of music director Theodore Kuchar, will be joined by the Fresno Community Chorus Master Chorale and Fresno State Concert Choir, directed by Anna Hamre.
I have four pairs of tickets for the 2:30 p.m. Sunday performance to give away to Beehive readers.
To enter the contest, leave a comment on this post telling us if you’ve ever seen “Apocalypse Now” — and if you think the famous helicopter scene would have worked without Wagner’s “Ride of the Valkyries.” I’ll pick four winners, each of whom will win two tickets.
Deadline is 6 p.m. Wednesday. Please don’t enter more than once. I’ll be informing our winner by email on Wednesday evening, so keep a watch on your inbox. If I haven’t heard from a winner by Thursday morning, I reserve the right to pick another. These are paper tickets, so you’ll need to be able to come down to The Bee’s front counter by 5 p.m. Friday to pick them up. Rules are on the jump.
