$8 Tickets And Other News

As I mentioned yesterday, all of our summer 2007 musical and dance performances were announced yesterday morning and tickets for those go on sale Saturday, December 2 at 10 a.m.

I'm blown away by the fact that lawn tickets for all of the dance performances are only eight bucks. As a Wolf Trap employee I'm probably a little biased but, regardless, I think the fact that people can throw down a blanket, enjoy their own food and drinks, and catch world class performers like Paul Taylor Dance Company, Doug Varone & Dancers, Trey McIntyre Project, and Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre for that price is pretty amazing. You could stop by our box office and buy two tickets for $16 total (no service charges if you come get them in person!), get a bottle of wine for even less than that, pack up your dinner, and you've got a less-than-$50 evening out (with dinner, drinks, and a show included) for two people in a great outdoor setting.

In other news...
