    Thank you!

    Have tried repeatedly to enter contest under many different headings, but very unsuccesful. How do we apply for the contest? I am a member of the Met.
    Phone 916-786-8044

  • why do you screw up the requirements to enter contest? This is a deliberate attempt to limit the number of entries….and you will give the prize to the one you favor anyway……boo hoo….nuts to you.

    i too see all of the live in HD Met Opera broadcast in
    St. Louis and i can’t find a way to enter the drawing for
    the New Year’s Eve Gala drawing. Please Help!!!!!!! 🙁

  • I would love to receive this trip and evening at the Met. We enjoy opera so much. It is such a treat to have the HD opportunity, because traveling to New York for opera performances is not easy for us because of the distance.

    I trust you will respond and confirm my registration for this opportunity of a lifetime.
