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 general-admission ticket to Opéra Louisiane's Faust at Louisiana’s Old State Capitol on Thursday, September 8 from 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. Doors open at 7 p.m. This Groupon does not include entry to the fête.
The performers in Opéra Louisiane's productions belt out arias while reenacting classic opera storylines. The 2011–2012 season kicks off with a 90-minute version of Gounod's Faust, the tale of an aging doctor so obsessed with becoming young that he makes a pact with the demon Mephistopheles to help him sew an adult-size baby bonnet. General-admission tickets seat audience members in white folding chairs lining the outskirts of the hall, which affords unfettered views of the winsome vocalists and provides the perfect backdrop for a romantic date or tax mediation.
