Big Gift Giveaway for December 24: 2 Family Four-Packs to Seattle Opera's Cinderella and La Bohème
How many of us always thought that when we had kids we'd be the kind of parents who provide only high-quality, culturally enriching activities for our offspring, activities like chess tournaments, historical reenactments and art gallery openings? It's so easy to romanticize parenthood. Now we're proud of ourselves if we make sure that PBS show they're staring at is educational.
But did you realize, dear parents, that even that most vaunted of artistic genres, opera, is not actually out of reach? And if you are one of today's two Big Gift Giveaway winners, the arias of your howling kidlets are not the only ones you can hear, because you will receive a Seattle Opera four-pack of tickets to either the Jan. 20, 2013 2 p.m. family matinee of Cinderella or a four-pack of tickets to the March 10, 2013 2 p.m. family matinee of La Bohème.
