Alas, I can't offer tickets to the Metropolitan Opera in New York, but here's something close: Regal Galaxy theater will be presenting "Carmen" as part of its "The Met: Live in HD" series on Jan. 16 at 1 p.m. It's a live performance, direct from Lincoln Center, on the big screen. (For more information on the series, click here)
I've got a pair of tickets to give away. All you have to do is post below.] I'll pick one winner at random. While there, mention your favorite Carmen...or your favorite car man.
Good luck.


  • Opera Tickets
    We've seen 3 of the Met's HD "live" performances so far this season and they're great! Because of the excellent stage direction and camera work, they might even be preferable to seeing them in person in NYC.
  • Carmen Tickets
    Whoa, Marsha. Nothing beats attending an actual opera performance. I'll admit this is an easier way to see a Met performance, but it's not preferable to actually being there.

    There have been many, many great Carmens, but when it comes to car men, nobody's better than the late Bob Catterson. Nooooooobody!
  • Carmen Tickets
    While I do prefer the full "experience" of an opera in its original form, the Met's HD performances are such a great opportunity to witness some of the finest voices in the world.

    I was able to go to one a year or two ago and while it was odd to be able to attend an opera in casual attire and smell the scent of popcorn while watching, it was still a fantastic opportunity.
  • Met in HD
    I'd love airline tickets and front-row seats at Lincoln Center, but I'll happily settle for the movie tickets...
  • Carmen
    My vote for the best "car man" goes to The Hoff in Knight Rider.
  • my favorite Carmen
    My favorite Carmen is me, that's my name. I have never seen the opera but would love to start at the Regal Galaxy. Can you help me with tickets?
  • Opera
    We have gone to the Opera in person but have been interested in seeing it at the movie theater. Sometimes it is easier to go close to home and in casual attire. Carmen if one of our favorites.
  • Fav. Car Man
    Favorite Car Men are Tom & Ray Magliozzi- Click & Clack, The Tappet Brothers.
  • Where in the world is...
    ...Carmen Sandiego? Great game, and kind of a babe. Hey, wait a minute... now I know why I've always preferred women of the "mysterious" type!
  • Date Night?
    Sounds like a great date night with my wife. Sorry Carmen,but she's the only girl for me.
  • Diverse entertainment in Indy!
    We're attenting the Professional Bull Riders this Saturday night at Conseco and would definitely enjoy Carmen the following Saturday afternoon--can't beat the cultural arts available in Indy. We are definitely fortunate. We saw the previews for Carmen when we attended the movies during the holiday season and the quality looked remarkable. We are attending even if I'm not Lou's lucky ticket winner. Thank you for the opportunity.
  • Toss up . . .
    Well I would say Carmen Sandiego, but since she never sends postcards and I never know where she is, my choice is Carmen Electra.
  • Carmen
    I would love to see this, I have only enjoyed the musid
  • Opera at its best
    I have been attending MET ALIVE for three seasons. I have attended the Met in NYC as well as several performances at the Vienna Opera House and these add an opportunity to go back stage, see the orchestra,actually see costume details etc. How lucky we have Met Alivehdk82
  • My Kids Need Culture
    I need to take my kids (and myself) to this movie to get a taste of high culture. Favorite Carmen: Carmen Sandiego. My husband's? Probably Carmen Electra.
  • This is hot
    So a cigarette factory is involved - political correctness be damned, full speed ahead. Or was that about torpedos in a bay? No matter, the music is heavenly. I feel bullish about this perfomance. Let the march begin!
  • Malcolm McLaren
    Malcolm McLaren did a great adaptation of Carmen on his 'Fans' album of Opera covers (His version of Madam Butterfly was great, too).
  • Carmen
    I think I could definately agree with Carmen Electra as my favorite.
  • Carmens
    Victoria Vergara (NYC Opera, 1980's) may have been the sexiest Carmen I ever saw but Marilyn Horne's was the best sung I ever heard. Live is best, don't want the camera telling me what to look at, but the Met's HD performances are a service to the artform.
  • Carmen
    My 17 year old son has an appreciation for the arts and wants to go see this feature!
  • Husband is into Opera
    My husband studied voice at IU particularly opera and was even in NY for a short time. He loves it and even now listens to them on TV but would love to go to the theatre locally. We went to the NY state Opera on our honeymoon 23 yrs ago and Carman , saucy woman that she is is a favorite.
  • carmen tix
    My favorite "car man" ... obviously Ray Skillman!:)
  • Bananas
    Carmen Miranda.
  • Phyllis
    My sister attends the Operas at the theater in Mississippi and has encouraged me to do the same. Now I have no excuse!
  • The Met
    Each year my wife and I promise each other we'll attend a Met performance but sadly have yet to do so. Favorite "car man" actually the car guys on NPR!
  • Carmen Tickets
    Now that these Live "HD" events are going so well, we should be seeing them Live in "3D" in the coming seasons.

    BTW, my favorite "car men" are NPR's Click and Clack.
  • Orange you glad to see Carmen!
    While I love the Met, I also enjoy this version of Carmen produced by Sesame Street. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jG-0_p_yefg
  • Car men
    all right Click and Clack! thought I was the only one that listened! I would really enjoy an opera, could take my 76 year old mother who has it on her bucket list!
  • Hip-Hopera
    Beyonce Knowles!
  • Cool!
    I've always wanted to see one of those operas at the movie theatre --- my coworker says they are really cool. And cheaper than airline tickets to NYC :-)
  • Hats of Fruit
    Even though I have not been to the MET, I will get there eventually. My favorite Carmen is Carmen Miranda. She's a walking campaign for healthy eating.
  • Favorite Carmen
    Who can forget the incredible tunes of CarMAN? You know, the Christian singer with hits like "Heart of a Champion" & "Stand-Up". Love it! Would greatly enjoy getting casually cultured...what a wonderful treat.
  • Carmen
    I agree with another poster; my favorite Carmen is Carmen Miranda. She always makes me laugh!
    But, I love the opera. It was Grandmother's favorite and we used to have such fun seeing it together.
  • Carman
    I loved the Christian rock singer Carman when I was growing up. Now my daughter is into opera. We are a very musically diverse family and would love the opportuity to see Carmen via the MET's HD series. Great opportunity
  • Carmen
    Favorite Carmen - Agnes Baltsa - Check her out on the old Met telecast from the '80s.
  • Car Men Opera
    I have never been to an opera yet & I would love to go! My favorite car men are Fred and Steve at Glendale Automotive.
  • opera
    My daughter is going to IU and majoring in Voice performance. She wants to be an opera singer. We've gone to every HD opera they've had so far. She loves to see which parts she wants to perform.
  • Carmen Tickets
    I love Opera and want too sing at the MET one day. I would love to play Carmen one day.
  • The Bad News Bears SoundTrack
    Yes, The Bad News Bears with Walter Mathau has the music of Carmen sprinkled throughout. My children noticed it immediatly. They know. They are in this performance of Carmen at the Met 1/16/10. By the time I tried to get tickets, the tristate area was sold out. Grandma, Grandpa are taking 1 of my children. But my husband my younger daughter and I are out of luck. Boy would we love to go....
  • Want to go
    My favorite Car man is Carmen.
    I would enjoy so much going to see Carmen.
