Now that our season announcement is public, you may begin to see online advertisements for tickets. Do not be fooled by ticket-brokers and “scalpers” promising what they don’t have as Ravinia has not released any tickets to the public yet. To purchase the best seats before the public, become a Ravinia donor. The donation you make will usually be less than what brokers charge, plus it could be tax-deductible, benefiting you even as it supports Ravinia, sustains classical music, and puts music back in the schools. Otherwise online ticket sales will begin on April 26 for the general public at Ravinia.org, with in person sales at the Ravinia Box Office starting on May 20.
