Regular Admission tickets are now on-sale

This year’s Ballet Gala, Apollo & The Muses: A Summer Celebration, will be held on Saturday, July 20, 2019. One of Balanchine’s early celebrated works, Apollo takes us on a breathtaking visual journey exploring the inspiration behind beauty and greatness. A not-to-be-missed event, the evening will highlight the beauty of the classical arts in an idyllic setting only SPAC and the Saratoga Spa State Park can offer.

Since 1966, the Ballet Gala has been the highlight of the Saratoga Performing Arts Center summer season. This year’s event honors our rich history with an elegant seated dinner in the Hall of Springs, while adding new layers of excitement with interactive, immersive performances, Jazz Bar access throughout the performance, and new Lawn Party activities. A brilliant fireworks display and live music with dancing under the stars in The Gala Tent round out an unforgettable evening.

NYCB Gala attendees can choose from a range of experiences including:

  • The Ballroom Gala complete with gourmet food and craft cocktail stations, preferred amphitheater seating, fireworks, post-performance dessert and cocktails in the Jazz Bar, dancing and activities on the SPAC grounds;
  • The Lawn Party featuring outdoor picnics and thematic tents, lawn admission for the NYCB performance, fireworks, post-performance dancing and activities on the SPAC grounds.
