It Came from Beyond the Ramparts of Seville

The first opera film to be presented in 3D, Carmen , shows up on screens worldwide (and in New York City, too) on March 3. And some lucky member of the cher public will have the opportunity to view this milestone in cinematic opera, as the guest of La Cieca! Details after the jump.

All you have to do, cher public, is to offer an appreciation of your favorite Carmen, Don Jose, Escamillo or Micaela in the comments below, and the author of the best comment (by determination of our panel of experts) will be awarded two tickets for Carmen 3D at 1:00 pm March 3 at AMC Loews Lincoln Square 13 in Manhattan’s trendy “Upper West Side” district.

Write hard, cher public, write hard! (La Cieca does ask that if you enter the competition seriously, you should be available to attend the March 3 showing; there are no exchanges available.)
