IU Opera Theater is offering HHC students a special ticket price of $10 to its spring opening-night opera performances. The discount can be applied to two tickets per person, allowing each HHC student to bring one guest (who must be a student but need not be a member of the HHC). Opening night for each opera is open seating, so you can sit wherever and with whomever you wish. This is a great opportunity to take advantage of IU's incredible opera program! The Musical Arts Center is one of the premiere opera facilities in the nation, and the IU Jacobs School of Music's opera program has been called "just about the most serious and consistently satisfying of all American opera companies." (In fact, it is the only university opera program to have ever been invited to perform with the Metropolitan Opera.)

Deadlines for special-price tickets purchased through the HHC are

    Benjamin Britten's Albert Herring - Tuesday, February 7, 2012, 4 p.m.
    Richard Strauss' Der Rosenkavalier - Tuesday, February 21, 2012, 4 p.m.
    Leonard Bernstein's Candide - Tuesday, April 3, 2012, 4 p.m.

If you are interested in attending one or more of these opening-night performances, please stop by Room 210H in the HHC building (811 E. Seventh Street, on the northwest corner of Seventh and Woodlawn) weekdays between 8 a.m. and noon or 1 and 4 p.m. You will need to pay for your ticket(s) with cash or a check (made out to "IU") at that time. You will be able to pick up your ticket(s) at the MAC Box Office during box office hours (11:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.) on the Thursday or Friday before the performance. The box office is also open in the hours preceding the performance. SPECIAL NOTE: Benjamin Britten's Albert Herring tickets should be picked up at the Buskirk-Chumley theater on Friday, Feb. 9, between 11a.m. and 8 p.m.

Be sure both you and your guest have your student IDs with you when you arrive to be seated.

We hope to see you at one or more of these performances!
