Join in on Quixote's Quest!

In Massenet's opera Don Quichotte, which will have its Seattle Opera premiere on February 26, the unlikely hero Don Quixote hopes to earn the love of the beautiful Dulcinea by retrieving a necklace that has been stolen from her. His earnest quest and adventurous spirit inspired us, so beginning this Monday, February 7, Seattle Opera launches what we're calling "Quixote's Quest"—a series of 4 week-long scavenger hunts that will reward some of our wonderful fans with prizes including free performance tickets!

How it Works

Each Monday for four weeks—February 7, 14, 21, and 28—Seattle Opera will hide a necklace at a different spot in the Seattle metropolitan area and post clues to its location here on the blog, as well as on our Facebook and Twitter pages.

The first person to find the necklace each week can bring it to the Seattle Opera Box Office and redeem it for free tickets to the Wednesday, March 9, performance of Don Quichotte. In addition, each of the "Quixote’s Quest" weekly winners will be placed in a drawing for a romantic grand prize package for two, which will include dinner at a Seattle restaurant and other special items.

The first clue will be posted this coming Monday by 10 a.m., with additional clues released throughout the week until the necklace has been found. If you don't find the first necklace, don't worry: hunts for new necklaces in new locations begin on February 14, 21, and 28.

The Rules

The "Quixote’s Quest" contest is open to those who are at least eighteen years of age or older. No purchase necessary. Employees of Seattle Opera as well as immediate family (spouses, domestic partners, parents, siblings, and children) and household members of such employees are not eligible. One winner per household. Participation in the Seattle Opera’s "Quixote’s Quest" Contest constitutes entrant's consent to Seattle Opera’s use of entrant's name, likeness, photograph, voice, and opinion for promotional purposes in any media, without payment.

Any Questions?
