This spring, without leaving Bloomington, you can travel to three very different settings and times—Persia in 480 BC, Egypt in 14th century BC, and England during the reign of Henry IV in the late 14th and early 15th centuries—and experience three quite different versions of opera as composed by a German in the 18th century, an American in the 20th, and an Italian in the 19th. You can try one or all three. You can also enjoy the contrasts of the Old and New Worlds at the ballet!

IU Opera and Ballet Theater is offering HHC students a special ticket price of $10 to opening-night performances of its spring operas and ballet. The discount can be applied to two tickets per person per performance, allowing each HHC student to bring one guest (who must be a student but need not be a member of the HHC). The seating on opening nights at the opera is open, so you will be able to sit wherever and with whomever you wish. Seating for the spring ballet will be reserved seating on the main floor. This is a great opportunity to take advantage of IU's incredible programs in opera and ballet!

Deadlines for special-price tickets purchased through the HHC are

    Handel's Xerxes - Tuesday, Jan. 29, 2013, 4 p.m.
    Glass'Akhnaten - Tuesday, Feb. 19, 2013, 4 p.m.
    Spring Ballet Old World New World - Tuesday, March 19, 2013, 4 p.m.
    Verdi's Falstaff - Tuesday, April 2, 2013, 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 St., on the northwest corner of Seventh and Woodlawn) weekdays starting January 7, 2013, 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. 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! For these operas and ballet, refunds will not be possible after the special-price ticket deadlines.
