Future opera singers are easily identified at birth due to their multi-octave crying and graceful bows as they emerge from the womb. Check out how far these tiny miracles have come with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $12, you get one reserved-seating ticket to see The Merry Widow, presented by Shreveport Opera at RiverView Theater on Saturday, October 29, at 7:30 p.m. (up to a $25 value). Seating will be in balcony sections A, E, H, or K.
Now in its 63rd season, Shreveport Opera delights theatergoers with classic operas rendered in sumptuous visual and euphonic hues. The Merry Widow weaves a tale of frustrated love and political intrigue in fin de siècle Paris. The plot follows the diplomats of a tiny European principality as they strive to convince a wealthy widow to keep her fortune in the country by marrying one of their own. Adulterous flirtations and farcical misunderstandings spice up mercenary machinations, all set to a catchy score by Austrian composer Franz Lehár. Balcony-level seating ensures unobstructedly elevated sightlines and prevents distraction from cheapskate rabbits trying to burrow in without a ticket.
Though Shreveport Opera offers discounts for student tickets, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
