This week New York's Metropolitan Opera kicks off its 10th season of broadcasting its operas to movie theaters around the world in The Met: Live in HD series. And this season, we'll have tickets to give away for all of them, specifically to the Hulen Movie Tavern in Fort Worth and the Cinemark Frisco Square. Talk about two theaters on opposites ends of the Metroplex.

These productions happen close to noon on Saturdays and at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesdays. Of course, it's opera, so expect to spend some time in the theater. There are intermissions.

First up is Verdi's Il Trovatore, with Anna Netrebko in her Met role debut as Leonora. Dmitri Hvorostovsky sings Count di Luna, Yonghoon Lee is Manrico, Dolora Zajick sings her signature role of the Gypsy Azucena, and Štefan Kocán is Ferrando. Marco Armiliato conducts Sir David McVicar's Goya-inspired production.

These tickets are for 11:55 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 3 and 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 7 at both theaters.

To be entered to win a pair, email and put MET TROVATORE NETREBKO in the subject line. Include your exact name, phone number and an email address where you'd like the tickets emailed. And indicate which performance and which theater you'd like, which is a must to be considered for the tickets.

The choices are:

  • 11:55 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 3 at Hulen Move Tavern, Fort Worth
  • 11:55 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 3 at Cinemark Frisco Square
  • 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 7 at Hulen Move Tavern, Fort Worth
  • 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 7 at Cinemark Frisco Square

We'll start notifying you throughout the day on Thursday, and the deadline to enter is 9 a.m. Friday, Oct. 2. We will give them your name and email and they'll send the tickets, which you can print or show on your smartphone at the box office. 

TheaterJones staffers and contributors, and their family members, are ineligible to play.

Next up, we'll give away tickets to the Met's production of Verdi's Otello, directed by Broadway's Bartlett Sher, which made news recently when the Met anounced it would no longer use blackface for the performer in the title role. Oh, and we'll also have a giveaway for the screenings of the National Theatre of London's Hamlet, starring Benedict Cumberbatch, at the Angelika Film Centers. Those tickets are nearly sold out, too. Thanks For Reading
