    I am puzzled by the grotesque image that was used in Gotham Opera’s publicity for Eliogabalo. It is still the weblink banner image, and I got a postcard advertising the show with this same ugly picture of a sort of cretinous ogre with bad teeth. I suppose I am supposed to look at this and think “hmm, erotic depravity” or something. But I don’t. Seems like a misfire. The image seems to have been removed from their website. Hmm.

      It’s the prices that I find more off-putting…

      Standing Room w/ Stage View $50.00

      Video Lounge Standing NO STAGE VIEW $30.00

      Next thing you know the Met will be selling tickets to view the opera on the TV screen in List Hall.

        Don’t give them any ideas. Or watching the TV monitor by the Box Office!

      • Jamie01 says:

        Those prices are rather steep. Is there also a two drink minimum?

        Gotham Opera prices have been the ONLY reason that I have NEVER gotten to see this Company, in works that I was otherwise very eager to hear/see

        VERY VERY EXPENSIVE..for the size of the House…
