Don't overpay for Colorado Ballet tickets - avoid ticket scammers!

Wednesday, November 05, 2014

Unfortunately, ticket scammers are out again, purchasing tickets to Colorado Ballet productions and reselling them at much higher prices.  We encourage our patrons to be cautious when purchasing tickets to our productions, especially for The Nutcracker.  We have seen tickets on these sites for sale for as high as $350 each.  We don't want our patrons overpaying for tickets--the highest price level that Colorado Ballet offers is $155.

When purchasing tickets to Colorado Ballet's The Nutcracker and other shows, we encourage you to only purchase through our website, www.coloradoballet.org or Altitude Tickets, www.altitudetickets.com.  These are the only two ticketing sites that we endorse.  We also occasionally sell tickets to select performances through Travelzoo, LivingSocial and Goldstar.  If you see our tickets for sale on any other websites, please note that these are not authorized vendors and you could get scammed.

If you purchase tickets through www.coloradoballet.org, please note that we do not include additional fees for print-at-home tickets--all taxes and fees are included in the price of the ticket.  So, a $25 ticket is $25 with the print-at-home option.  There is a small fee for will call or to have tickets mailed to you.  If you purchase on www.coloradoballet.org or through Altitude Tickets, you can pick your own seats.  Beware of sites that do not allow you to see exactly where you are sitting!  If they tell you what "zone" you are in but do not show you where the seats are located, you are probably paying too much for your tickets.

Colorado Ballet offers six ticket price levels, which are spread throughout the different levels in the venues.  Here are the prices of Colorado Ballet's tickets during the 2014-2015 season:

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

If you see Colorado Ballet tickets for sale at prices higher than these, they are probably for sale through a non-authorized ticketing vendor that has added on additional fees.  Additionally, if you purchase through another site, unfortunately, our ticketing staff cannot help with any ticketing problems.  We want our patrons to have the best experience possible, so please be cautious when purchasing tickets.  We hope you enjoy the ballet!

Colorado Ballet presents 54th annual production of The Nutcracker

Monday, November 03, 2014
Colorado Ballet will light up the stage with The Nutcracker, presented by KeyBank, November 29 through December 27, 2014 at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House.  This holiday tradition features classic choreography after Marius Petipa paired with Tchaikovsky's score performed live by the Colorado Ballet Orchestra.

This marks the 54th year that Colorado Ballet’s The Nutcracker has been a part of Colorado’s holiday celebration.  The Nutcracker features memorable characters including Clara, the Nutcracker Prince and the Sugarplum Fairy as well as dazzling costumes, onstage blizzards and larger-than-life sets.

The Nutcracker is the best way to kick off the holiday season and it is a must-see for children and adults,” said Colorado Ballet Artistic Director Gil Boggs.  “This enchanting adventure will transport audiences to a magical world of awe and wonder. It doesn’t matter how many times I have seen The Nutcracker, every performance is still magic.  That is why nearly 50,000 people see our production each year.”

In addition to Colorado Ballet’s professional Company and Studio Company on stage, more than 60 students from the Colorado Ballet Academy will perform as polichinelles, party children, soldiers, angels and sugarplum attendants.

“Year after year, Colorado Ballet’s presentation of The Nutcracker continues to be one of Colorado’s most popular holiday traditions,” said Boggs.  “We encourage people to purchase their tickets early because last season, we sold out 19 of the 25 performances and the year before, we sold out 18 of the 24 performances.  It is still as popular as ever!”
