Sure enough, the ticket prices were very reasonable. Who couldn't afford to take a child to see an outstanding ballet for five dollars? The accompanying adult cost was only ten dollars. For the main public performance tickets start at $21. Although that isn't bad, it does hit the pocket book when three people attend.
I asked the children if they would like to see The Nutcracker. They both energetically said YES! So, I printed the ticket ordering form and made out the check. We will attend our first ballet in December.
