Beware of ticket scammers!

Friday, July 11, 2014

With single tickets to Colorado Ballet's 2014-2015 season going on sale on Tuesday, July 15, we want to remind our patrons to beware of ticket scammers.  Colorado Ballet sells tickets on our own website, www.coloradoballet.org and through our partners at Altitude Tickets (formerly known as TicketHorse), www.altitudetickets.com.  We encourage patrons to only buy tickets through these two websites.  Occasionally, we will also sell tickets to select performances through Travelzoo and LivingSocial.

Colorado Ballet does not partner with or endorse other ticketing services and we cannot guarantee the quality of ticketing services through other ticketing vendors.  We have heard complaints from patrons who have purchased through other sites, especially when it comes to extra fees.  Please be aware that Colorado Ballet does not charge additional fees when you select the print at home option on our website.  So, a $25 ticket is only $25 through print at home.  (The only additional ticketing fees we charge are for mailed tickets, will call or exchanges.)

Here are the 2014-2015 ticket prices:

  • Pointe Circle - $155
  • Spotlight Circle - $120
  • A Seating - $90
  • B Seating - $75
  • C Seating - $50
  • D Seating - $25

If a ticketing vendor wants to charge you much higher prices for these tickets or add on exorbitant handling fees, be suspicious!  We want our patrons to have a great experience before and during performances, so don't be fooled by ticket scammers.

On Tuesday, click here to purchase single tickets.  We hope you enjoy Colorado Ballet this season!

Breaking attendance and revenue records from the 2013-2014 season, Colorado Ballet had its most successful performance season in its 53-year history. The company’s audience grows substantially each year and we are seeing more and more sold-out shows. This is why we are thrilled to announce that our Colorado Ballet subscriptions for the 2014-2015 season are now available!

Our season subscribers are our most valuable and loyal audience members, who enjoy a host of benefits and privileges. We thank our subscriber family by offering priority seating, discounted tickets, and invitations to exclusive events.  Subscribers receive 25% off for all performances, complementary ticket exchanges, and get to choose their preferred dates and times early.  As a subscriber, you will also have the ability to retain your preferred seats for the following season or even upgrade your seating before new subscribers are assigned seats. So purchase your Colorado Ballet tickets as a subscription series now and make the ballet a regular event!

The 2014-2015 subscription package includes A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Ballet MasterWorks and Peter and the Wolf.  Additional tickets for these three performances and/or tickets to see The Nutcracker and Dracula can also be purchased separately, with priority seating and 25% off before tickets go on sale to the general public.

As a season opener, A Midsummer Night’s Dream will take the stage September 26-October 5, 2014 at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House. This enchanting ballet inspired by the classic Shakespearian story will be filled with mischief, romance and comedy.  A Midsummer Night’s Dream will include an original score by Felix Mendelssohn, performed live by the Colorado Ballet Orchestra and the Colorado Children’s Chorale.

To follow, Colorado Ballet will present a special Halloween weekend performance of Dracula, October 31-November 2, 2014. “Spine-tingling would be an understatement for how this thrillingly beautiful performance based on Bram Stoker’s Gothic horror will leave you feeling,” said Colorado Ballet Artistic Director Gil Boggs.  This production will feature seductive vampires, frightening mental patients, the king of the undead, and an eerie and beautiful score performed live by the Colorado Ballet Orchestra.

The season will continue by ringing in the holiday with one of Colorado Ballet’s favorite traditions, The Nutcracker November 29-December 27, 2014.  Celebration, gift giving, comic battles, and onstage blizzards, are just a few highlights of what this dazzling production will bring. So mark your calendars and get your discounted tickets early, for we expect nothing less than a packed house for each performance.

In the spring, Ballet MasterWorks will take the stage February 20-March 1, 2015. This ballet will feature three different pieces and live music by the Colorado Ballet Orchestra. The three sections will include Concerto Barocco featuring a beautiful score by composer Johann Sebastian Bach; Fancy Free, a ballet set during World War II with music by Leonard Bernstein; and a new work which will be announced at a later date. “Ballet MasterWorks is a true masterpiece of three innovative ballets that will showcase our dancers’ artistry and elegance,” said Boggs.

Colorado Ballet will close out its 2014-2015 season with the famous Russian children’s tale Peter and the Wolf, March 27-29, 2015 at the June Swaner Gates Concert Hall at the Newman Center for the Performing Arts. This witty and musical production will be perfect for families, as the festive characters portray bravery and imagination.

Taking place at The Ritz-Carlton, Denver, this black-tie event promises a glamorous evening of entertainment, dancing, dinner, and more!

Gala Co-Chair, Kris McMullan, said “we have been able to feature such great community leaders at the Balletto di Gala; the Auxiliary feels fortunate to have one of the premiere dance galas of the season that raises money for such a great cause.”

Colorado Ballet is thrilled for this year’s lineup. Former Denver Broncos guard, Zane Beadles, will be dancing with Morgan Buchanan. SVP of Investor Relations and Business Development for Boulder Brands, Carole Buyers, will be paired with Dmitry Trubchanov.

Buyer Beware – Tickets for Sale on Outside Websites

Where is the best place to buy tickets for Colorado Ballet performances?  Recently, some of our customers have had issues when purchasing tickets through outside vendor websites.  We encourage our patrons to buy directly through our website, www.coloradoballet.org, because our staff can assist with any problems or changes.  We do not work with or endorse any outside ticketing websites with the exception of Altitude Tickets (formerly known as TicketHorse) at www.altitudetickets.com.  Occasionally, we will also sell tickets to select performances through Travelzoo and LivingSocial.  If you purchase tickets through a different ticketing vendor, we cannot guarantee the quality of ticketing services and cannot help with any problems.

What you see is what you get when you buy tickets through www.coloradoballet.org.  Outside vendor websites may charge large processing fees, but all taxes and fees are included in the price of tickets through our website for print-at-home tickets, so a $50 ticket is $50.  The only additional fee is a nominal fee if you want your tickets mailed or placed at will call.

We don’t want our customers to get scammed.  Please purchase through www.coloradoballet.org or through www.altitudetickets.com only.

Thank you for supporting Colorado Ballet!
