Munich Opera Festival 2012
Speaking of bookings, this is another reminder. If you want to attend La Boheme in Munich on July 17&20, then you should consider applying for tickets on the opera house website. It's a lottery. Three easy steps:1. Choose the performances
2. Apply (for all of them at the same time)
3. Pray. The orders will be processed starting February 1, 2012. Remaining tickets will be sold online and at the box office from March 24, 2012.
It's up to Bayerische Staatsoper if they give you the tickets requested or not. Rumor has it that you have higher chances if you don't apply for the cheapest tickets (pay attention to what you book. up where the pigeons nest and on the sides there are many seats with no view at all). Or if you apply for several performances in a row.
It's July, it's Festival so it's not very difficult to find goodies. What do you think about this...
