2006_10_metopera.jpgOpera isn't just for the swells! Starting today, the Metropolitan Opera is offering $20 rush tickets for $100 orchestra seats at performances Monday through Thursday. The tickets will be available two hours before the performance (if there are any $100 tickets available at the performance to begin with), with a limit of two per customer. It looks like you can get rush tickets for tonight's performance of Faust!

Here's what the Metropolitan Opera will be performing this season. The Met has been trying to broaden the appeal of opera for everyone. Last week, they showed the premiere of Madama Butterfly on screens in Times Square.
