First-time opera-goers can attend free
Opera Carolina's Hearst Night at the Opera Jan. 23

The Hearst Foundations are sponsoring 500 free tickets for first-time operagoers to attend a performance of Giacomo Puccini’s triple-bill “Il Trittico” this winter.

Anyone who has not attended an Opera Carolina performance can enter the “Hearst Night at the Opera” contest Dec. 6-8 by visiting OperaCarolina.org/win. Winners will receive two tickets to see Opera Carolina’s Jan. 23 performance of “II Trittico” at Belk Theater.

The Hearst Foundations have provided a multi-year Audience Building grant of $300,000 to help Opera Carolina as it seeks to build its audience in key demographic areas by providing free and subsidized tickets to select performances.

The “Hearst Night at the Opera” is for first time concertgoers only. Past attendees will be disqualified. After the online contest closes Dec. 8, winners will be randomly selected. Visit OperaCarolina.org/win for contest rules and details.
