And in this dream, WQXR’s Operavore was hosting an exclusive season preview for the Met at the charming downtown Greene Space. Ildar Abdrazakov was there, and Isabel Leonard, and David Alden and Thomas Adès, too. Oh, wait, Dolora Zajick was there too, or La Cieca should say “will be there,” because the event was, in fact, no dream but is actually happening on October 10.

And you, cher public, have a chance to join in the festivities too, as will be revealed after the jump.  

To win a pair of tickets to this event, simply compose in the comments section below your own synopsis of Il trovatore. La Cieca’s blue-ribbon panel will select the most outrageously entertaing of all the synopses and award to its creator (or creatrix) a pair of tickets to this October 10 event. The competition will close at midnight on Sunday, October 7, with the lucky victor (or victrix) announced on Monday the 8th. La Cieca’s decision as to the winner is of course utterly subject to whim, as always.
