Bolshoi Ballet at SPAC tickets on sale

bolshoi SPACTickets went on sale today for the Bolshoi Ballet's string of dates at SPAC next July. Tickets start at $34 and they're available online (use the code "SPACROCKS" for a discount). When we checked this morning around 10:30 am, SPAC's website reported that it was "experiencing an unusually high volume of requests" for tickets.

The performances at SPAC will be a production of Don Quixote including not just dancers, but also the Bolshoi's 80-piece orchestra. The run includes four performances, from July 29-August 1.

As you know, the Bolshoi is based in Moscow and is one of the most famous ballet companies in the world. And, um, they take ballet very seriously in Russia -- perhaps a bit too seriously.

Comments

It should be noted, as well, that the Bolshoi is performing in only three venues in the US in '14: the Kennedy Center in DC, Lincoln Center in NYC, and SPAC.
