The Arena of Verona, in Northern Italy, is an ancient Roman theatre. Today it is the world largest open air theatre and the stage for a world renown opera season which every summer thrills thousands of visitors from all over the world with Europe’s most renown compositions and a charming and enchanting setting.
To enlarge to opera public among the web users an interesting venture started last year, aimed to music and culture lovers: Fondazione Arenza di Verona is offering special seats for only 10 euros to Twitter users. They are the so-called tweet seats, an unmissable chance to enjoy the spectacular show of Verona’s Arena at an incredibly low price.
The tweet seats buyers will attend the opera from a reserved area located beside the stage, in order to be able to stay connected through their mobile devices without disturbing the rest of the audience.
To apply for the tweet seats you have to fill the online form with name, family name, email and Twitter username. You will be requested to select the event you wish to attend (the options include Carmen, Aida, Turandot, Madama Butterfly, Placido Domingo’s concert and Romeo et Juliette) and to send a confirmation tweet with the hashtag #inarena.
The requirements are really basic: a Twitter account since at least one month, at least one tweet in the last month and more than 50 tweets overall.
The candidates will be contacted through email in 24 hours and the seats will be assigned according to availability.
