Aural Seduction.

“Seattle Opera is looking to build its audience by reaching out to lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender music fans. The arts organization announced three LGBT Nights at McCaw Hall during the upcoming 2008-09 season. At these designated performances, patrons may pay $100 for discounted main-floor orchestra seating, private intermission receptions (with wine, hors d’oeuvres and desserts) and admission to preshow lectures. The inaugural event — an Aug. 22 presentation of “Aida” — will be hosted by Seattle Opera trustee JJ McKay and Washington state Sen. Ed Murray.” [Seattle Times]

    uhhhhh…that’s nice and all, but how do they confirm that you’re queer?

    I’m active in the opera here in Seattle, and this is the first I heard of this. Strange. I’ll definitely be asking the educational director about it tonight. My guess is that it’s just a way of drawing people with a gay-themed night. I doubt they’ll be checking your lavender cards at the door.
