i got tix to an opera labelled as "black tie optional." i'm not sure if that means i should go with a tux or something sloppier, because i cant imagine what other citizens of my city are planning to wear, and i don't want to be underdressed but i REALLY don't want to be overdressed. any 667 emily posts got some tips?

Wear something that looks relatively fancy, but becomes more casual when you remove a few accessories, like a tie or cufflinks or whatever you have available. Then assess the situation when you're there. Eventually, if you're driving there, bring both a casual jacket and a blazer, and keep whichever one you don't need in the car.
My feeling would be that if it's 'back tie optional' that means it's definitely formal, and if you choose not to wear black tie (i.e. a tuxedo), you ought to wear a suit. But customs may be different where you are: I dunno.
