Some 25,000 seats at 13 preview performances will go on sale for 10 euros ($11) to opera lovers under the age of 28.

It’s a bold assault by Stéphane Lissner, formerly of La Scala, on a potential new audience.

He’s putting up 18 new productions, including Schoenberg’s Moses und Aron and Bartok’s Bluebeard Castle.

Bold, very bold.

    What a brilliant idea. Similar things done all over Europe. When will the UK follow suit?

    Nothing will come of it’s all whistling in the dark while walking past the cemetery.
    The audience year by year gets smaller and smaller ..the hard core will always be
    there pretending otherwise with endless streams of comments on how to save the art .
    The corpse will be dressed in “contemporary'” clothes to show it still has life but unfortunately it still is a corpse .
