If local residents take the time to donate blood to the American Red Cross within the next month and a half, they could be rewarded with more than a feeling of satisfaction.

Opera San Jose is donating tickets to the opening night of Cosi fan Tutte as a gift for blood donors. All donors to the three mobile blood drives throughout the South Bay, listed below, will be entered in a raffle for a chance to win two tickets to the Mozart opera and receive a certificate for a 20 percent discount on the purchase of tickets to the show. Any students who donate will receive a certificate allowing them to buy tickets to the opera for $11.

Cosi fan Tutte is scheduled to open at the California Theatre in downtown San Jose on Feb. 7. The opera is considered a zany comedic performance, but also a deeply human drama.
