The Saratoga Performing Arts Center is offering its 2016 holiday collection ticket specials in time for holiday gift giving.
Available through Thursday, Dec. 22, the collection includes a classical season lawn pass for all performances of New York City Ballet and The Philadelphia Orchestra, a new flex ticket option for the Freihofer’s Saratoga Jazz Festival and a holiday gift subscription to Opera Saratoga.
To mark the holiday sale, SPAC’s new President and CEO Elizabeth Sobol invites audiences to join her at the Hall of Springs Box Office on Saturday, Dec. 17 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Refreshments will be served. Holiday Collection packages may be purchased in-person that day.
“Audience support for SPAC’s 50th anniversary was remarkable, so now we hope to give back with these special holiday offers,” said Sobol. “And we are thrilled to include our partner organization, Opera Saratoga, in our Holiday Collection offerings for the first time.”
The classical season lawn pass includes lawn admission to all 2017 performances by New York City Ballet, July 5-15, and the Philadelphia Orchestra, Aug. 2-19. Highlighting The Philadelphia Orchestra’s three-week season will be the return of lauded maestros Stéphane Denève, Marin Alsop and music director Yannick Nézet-Séguin. The Pass also includes the option to upgrade five lawn tickets to amphitheater seats for just $5.
The flex lawn ticket to the Freihofer’s Saratoga Jazz Festival, June 24-25, allows guests the opportunity to take advantage of the Holiday Collection without having to commit attendance at either day of the festival. The flex ticket will be available for $50 (one-day lawn passes are typically $65) and can be used on either day of the Festival.
Opera Saratoga’s 2017 Season, July 1-16, includes three operas: Verdi’s comic “Falstaff;” “Zémire et Azor” by Grétry, one of Mozart’s favorite composers; and a special 80th anniversary production of Blitzstein’s “The Cradle Will Rock,” which premiered on Broadway in 1937.
Gift Certificates to Saratoga Performing Arts Center’s classical season performances, including the Freihofer’s Saratoga Jazz Festival, New York City Ballet, the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, The Saratoga Wine and Food Festival, and other special engagement performances, are available in any denomination.
All Holiday Collection offerings may be purchased online at www.spac.org/holiday-collection or over the phone at 584-9330 through Thursday, Dec. 22. Purchasing fees will be waived for all Holiday Collection offers.
