More than 25,000 tickets have been requested for the Dallas Opera's one night simulcast at Cowboys Stadium.
Mozart's "Magic Flute" will be simulcast live on Saturday, April 28 to Cowboys Stadium in Arlington while the Dallas Opera performs it at the Winspear Opera House in Dallas. Viewers of the simulcast will see the performance on the stadium's massive video boards.
With all those requested tickets, the performance may end up being one of the best attended opera shows in U.S. history, according to the organizers.
Data from ticket requests states about 93-percent of the households participating haven't previously bought tickets to the Dallas Opera.
"One of the goals of the Dallas Opera is to bring great singing and world-class theater to the widest possible audience," Dallas Opera General Director and CEO Keith Cerny explained in a press release. "As part of our commitment to expanding our community outreach we are thrilled to announce an unprecedented, 'game-changing' collaboration with the Cowboys organization."
Tickets are still available for the simulcast with reserved seating available for up to 10 seats per person. Both the tickets and the parking are free.
