Dance company Diavolo has developed a reputation for their athletic, acrobatic, dramatic movement on larger-than-life, surrealistic sets and structures. These internationally renowned performers are more than just dancers -- they're gymnasts, actors and athletes who rely on teamwork as well as skill. Under the guidance of artistic director Jacques Heim, they investigate the relationship between humans and the architectural environment and the ways in which these urban structures affect us socially, emotionally and physically. Spoken word artist Steve Connell brings voice to the ideas presented by Diavolo. This pre-sale offer gives you access to some of the best seats before tickets go on sale to the general public.

We waited for 1 Hour with three kids and could not wait any longer. Kids simply become too antsy after 1 Hour of sitting around doing absolutely nothing! Very little to No information was provided by the staff members, so I’m quite surprised...continued
The Nutcracker ballet by Peter Tchaikovsky is based on the story “The Nutcracker and the King of Mice” written by E.T.A. Hoffman. Although what is seen on the stage today is different in detail from the original story, the basic plot remains the same: the story of a young girl who dreams of a Nutcracker Prince and of a fierce battle against a Mouse King with seven heads.
When Marius Petipa first choreographed the story into a ballet in 1892, it was actually based on a revision by Alexander Dumas, a well-known French author. His version reflects more of what audiences have come to love as The Nutcracker ballet.
