Time Out says

Los Angeles is known for its car culture—being the second most gridlocked city in the U.S. and all—so it's fitting that the first-ever car opera will have its world premiere here. The Industry, known for producing experimental shows in unique locations, opens Hopscotch, an opera takes place in 24 actual moving cars. Buy a ticket and you'll be driven around LA in a car with the performers (and a driver, not part of the 100-member cast) for an intimate, immersive experience with performances taking place both inside and outside of the vehicle. There are three routes you can choose from to experience the opera—red, yellow and green. The Industry says it's not necessary to travel all three routes to see the whole opera, and if a bird's-eye view rather than the backseat of a car is more your thing, you can also watch the opera unfold via a live stream from a Central Hub at the Southern California Institute of Architecture—and as a bonus, those tickets are free.

Tickets range from free (for the live stream at the Central Hub) to $125 for a seat in a car for one route, and $500 for all three routes. Don't have that kind of money? Every week The Industry will give away 16 tickets for $25 in a lottery—follow them on social media for more details.
