Vouchers for this performance are good for open seating. 

Vouchers are available for pick up weekdays, 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 1 to 4 p.m. in the Hutton Honors College, Room 208, beginning January 8. You will then be able to take the voucher to the MAC Ticket Office during box office hours, 11:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., weekdays, to purchase your ticket(s). There is a limited number of vouchers available through this program so we encourage you to act promptly. Vouchers can be used for opening night performances only. 

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


Ariadne auf Naxos

Imagine the Cubs and the Colts playing on the same field at the same time and participating in each other’s game!

Slightly confusing—but highly amusing, which is just what Vienna’s richest man has in mind for his party!

He’s hired a serious opera company and a troupe of comediennes—and insists that their shows take place simultaneously so his firework display can start promptly at nine! Sparks fly as the prima donna, who’s been jilted by her lover, emotes hysterically and decides to kill herself—only to have a saucy comedienne walk into her act to counsel her on the ease of finding another man!

With its gentle poke at “high art,” this is Strauss at his sophisticated best, replete with luscious melodies and vocal pyrotechnics galore.
