Free To A Good Home

I have one (1) spare ticket for Turandot at the Met on March 1st, a week from Saturday. It's for the matinee performance at 1:30, and is one of the worst seats in the house: Family Circle Box A Seat 39. That's on the left side, on the highest level, only the ninth seat back from the corner of the stage. The stage is much more below and to the right than in front of anyone sitting there. On the other hand, though the angle is terrible, the distance is not bad. And the sound is the main thing, anyway.

I will mail the ticket to whoever claims it first with a message in the comments, as long that is followed up with an e-mail giving an exact mailing address. Don't ask me about the production: I haven't seen it yet, and the Metropolitan Opera site should tell you everything you want to know.

I'll be at the performance, but in a Balcony Box (one level lower) and further back. (I've been going to the Met every two or three weeks since October. Between buying tickets far enough ahead to have a choice of good seats -- not far enough ahead in this case, obviously -- and not buying them so far ahead that I spend my paychecks before I earn them, I screwed up and bought tickets for the same show twice.)

I'm claiming it.

Great: send me your street address by e-mail if you haven't already and I'll put it in the mail Tuesday, since Monday's a holiday.

Get ready for some scenery-applauding. I'll listen for you guys on the radio.

So this is a broadcast performance? If you're listening to the quietest part of 'Nessun dorma' and hear someone shout 'Congratulations, Sasha and Andrew! Wahoo-wah!' before being dragged out by the ushers, you'll know it's me. When is the wedding, anyway?
