Puccini’s Turandot: Penny for the Arts deal!

My children and I got to see the Knoxville Opera’s performance of Puccini’s Turandot this week, and it was AMAZING! I cannot recommend this opera enough. The costumes and sets are as gorgeous as the singing. I like to read a plot synopsis to my kids ahead of time, but some people prefer to just read the English supertitles as the opera goes along.

You can get children’s tickets for just a penny when you buy an adult ticket to this weekend’s performances!

Here are the details:

AN ICY, BEAUTIFUL PRINCESS SO DESIRABLE THAT MEN CAME BY THE HUNDREDS TO VIE FOR HER LOVE. Desired by all men but wanting none, China’s cold-blooded Princess Turandot has built a wall of riddles around her heart.  Despite the deadly consequences of failure, Prince Calàf takes on Turandot’s challenge to match her wit and melt her icy resistance. Certainly the finest opera never completed, Turandot was bereft of its final scene due to Puccini’s untimely death. While it took a mere mortal to finish what this genius composer had started, Turandot remains among the top of the operatic pantheon to this day. Its ravishing score bursts with brilliant choruses and fiendishly difficult arias, including “Nessun dorma,” which Luciano Pavarotti elevated to iconic status. The opera’s music and majesty will be crowned by four sensational artists. Performed in Italian with projected English translations.

Opera previews hosted by Maestro Salesky begin 45 minutes prior to opera performances.  Patrons get insight into the music, story, history and a chance for Q&A. All students are invited to take photos with the cast on the set after the final curtain for Turandot.

Performances: Friday, February 23 at 7:30 PM and Sunday, February 25 at 2:30 PM. Contact Knoxville Opera box office for Penny4Arts tickets to either performance. Tickets may also be available starting one hour prior to performance time at the Civic Auditorium. Please allow extra time for parking downtown and security lines. Please be aware of the security policy for the Knoxville Civic Auditorium.

Advance reservations required? NO

The stories are written for kids ages 5 to 12 and each includes a story guide with discussion points, recipes and activity ideas.

Get ticket deals NOW for “A Christmas Carol” at the Clarence Brown Theatre!

Last year my two daughters had the amazing experience of performing in “A Christmas Carol” at the Clarence Brown Theatre. They learned so much from the experience, and of course I wanted to see them perform as many times as possible. I sought out all the best ticket deals I could find so I could share with friends and family. Although it is a wonderful thing to be able to support live theater through the purchase of full-price tickets – and I greatly admire those patrons who do! – sometimes your budget will only allow you to experience theater if you can find a really great deal.  Part of the Clarence Brown’s mission is to educate the local community about theater, and they offer some great ways to allow families to experience shows even when budgets are tight. Here are some of my favorite deals at the CBT.


The Clarence Brown Theatre (CBT) offers a special evening called “Family Feast”, where each ticket is $10 and includes dinner before the show! The stated purpose of this evening is “to promote the fading practice of family dinners and to celebrate community through theatre,” and you must make reservations as a family or group – however you define family! There are two Family Feasts each year, one for their spring show and one for A Christmas Carol. This year the Family Feast night for Christmas Carol is Wednesday, December 6. You have to call the Clarence Brown box office directly to get tickets. (865) 974-5161. They’re only open from noon to 5 weekdays. You can’t get this deal online, and it sells out very quickly! For more info about Family Feast, go here.


The CBT also participates in the Penny for the Arts program – absolutely one of my FAVORITE deals. When you buy one discounted adult ticket ($22 or so) you can get up to 3 kids’ tickets for a penny. (Additional tickets for your group will be regular price.) Yet again, you have to call the Clarence Brown box office directly to get these tickets, and make sure you ask for Penny for the Arts tickets. You can only get the Penny for the Arts deal for the following weeknight shows: Nov 29-Dec. 1, and Dec. 5-8.

 

For more on Penny for the Arts, go here.

The CBT offers a “Pay What You Wish Preview Wednesday” for most of its shows. Tickets may be purchased in person from 4:00pm until curtain the day of the below performances at the CBT Box Office kiosk in the lobby. Cash only, in full dollar amounts accepted and tickets are available on a first come, first served basis. Limited to 8 tickets per purchase.

In my experience, the Christmas Carol “Pay What You Wish” night sells out very quickly, mostly from University of Tennessee students who see the show for free on the same night with their student IDs (which is also a great deal!) I would go ahead and have tickets in hand from one of the other above deals. But, since it’s a great deal, I’m including it on this list. Here are this season’s Pay What You Wish dates:

And here’s where you can go for more info on Pay What You Wish Wednesday preview nights.

 

Finally, a REALLY great way to see free shows is by working as an usher! When you commit to usher before and after a show (and during intermission) you can see the show from a special usher’s seat for free! Go here to sign up for ushering spots.

Tickets available for September 5-8 (entire show run is August 30 – September 17) at Clarence Brown Theatre Mainstage. Seats for Penny4Arts are available on a first come, first served basis and are subject to availability.

Open to students outside of Knox County? YES
