FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Brooklyn Repertory Opera to offer $5.00 tickets to unemployed New Yorkers
In an effort to make sure that New Yorkers hit by the current economic hard times can still enjoy live performing arts, Brooklyn Repertory Opera will offer discounted tickets to it's upcoming run of Gluck's "Orpheus and Eurydice" (3/20 @ 7:30 PM and 3/21, 3/28, 3/29 at 3:30 PM). The discounted tickets will be priced at $5.00 and may be purchased by anyone presenting a current unemployment insurance check stub at the box office on the day of the performance. There is a limit of one ticket per purchaser.
In conjunction with the special ticket pricing, the Brooklyn Lyceum Cafe will roll back the price of a cup of coffee to just 5 cents for all persons attending "Orpheus and Eurydice".
This production is fully staged with orchestra and is conducted by Harry Saltzman. Maestro Saltzman was a Professor of Music at Brooklyn College's Conservatory of Music, where he conducted the chorus and orchestra. He retired in 1999, and these performances mark his return to the podium.
General admission tickets for "Orpheus and Eurydice" are $20, while student and senior tickets are $10. Group rates are also available. Brooklyn Lyceum is located at 227 4th Ave, Brooklyn, New York (located on the corner of President and 4th Avenue). It is accessible from the R Subway at the Union Street stop.
