Nixon in China Tweet Seats Application

San Francisco Opera is looking for a few socially savvy Tweeters

San Francisco Opera is looking for a few socially savvy Tweeters to attend the final dress rehearsal of Nixon in China on Tuesday, June 5 at 2 PM and Tweet through the entire performance.

John Adams’ rhythmically rich re-creation of a presidential trip to Beijing has established itself as a great American opera, a work of “clarity, simplicity, shocking elegance” that “will be around for the long haul” (The New York Times).

We want your authentic opinions and thoughts, and perhaps even a scene-by-scene recap of the onstage action. In other words, we'll give you an opera ticket in exchange for your stellar social media skills!

Sound like something you'd be interested in? Here are the details:
  • Opera: Nixon in China
  • Date: Tuesday, June 5
  • Time: 2:00 PM
  • Location: War Memorial Opera House
  • Seats are extremely limited*
Apply today! Deadline for applications is noon on Friday, June 1, 2012.


Submission of this form does not guarantee your seat. Those selected will receive confirmation by end of day Friday, June 1, 2012. Each person chosen will receive one (1) complimentary ticket to the Nixon in China dress rehearsal on June 5, 2012. If you want a friend to attend with you, choose someone who is also active on social media and have them sign up!
We reserve the right to deny tickets based on questionable social media practices such as known spamming, previous posts with undesirable content, excessive profanity, and anything else deemed inappropriate.
