COMMANDOpera announced some weeks ago the BIG screen Dallas event of Die Zauberflote which takes place at Cowboy Stadium on April 28th. Apparently ticket requests have gone through the open roof. Here is something of the email just received:
REQUESTS FOR TICKETS TO THE DALLAS OPERA COWBOYS STADIUM ONE-NIGHT-ONLY SIMULCAST TOP 25,000!
‘The Dallas Opera, in partnership with Cowboys Stadium, is delighted to announce that more than 25,000 tickets to the Dallas Opera’s one-night-only April 28th Cowboys Stadium Simulcast, presented by The Dallas Foundation, have been requested by opera lovers from throughout Texas and 26 additional states. Ticket requests have also come in from the District of Columbia and Canada since the joint announcement was made on January 26th at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
These numbers indicate that the groundbreaking North Texas simulcast may become one of the best attended opera performances in U.S. history. Additional data collected from those making ticket requests indicate that, as of today (March 27, 2012), 93% of participating households have no previous purchasing history with the Dallas Opera. For many, the Cowboys Stadium Simulcast will mark their first, live experience of the art form in any venue.’
This is why COMMANDOpera admires the DALLAS Opera: They have a rock solid understanding and appreciation of main street and how to attach to it. Tickets are still available.
