Thanks to Jon at the blog, mushin no shin, I have learned that Opry Mills hosts simulcasted performances of the Metropolitan Opera Saturday Matinees. For the very affordable price of $18, this Nashvillian can get a taste of high culture from the Big Apple. I may be watching it on-screen instead of on stage, but I get to see it live as if I was in Lincoln Center itself - and not at prices ranging from $42 to $295 a seat.
The next performance is March 24 at 12:30. It is The Barber of Seville. I don't wish to give away the ending, but I am really looking forward to seeing the part where Bugs Bunny shaves Elmer Fudd's face ("Yoooou're so next!").
