Colorado Ballet’s production of The Wizard of Oz exceeded $1 million in ticket sales, making it the highest selling production in the company’s history outside of its Nutcracker programming. Additionally, the company is on track for the current 2018/2019 season to mark the fifth consecutive, all-time highest selling season in Colorado Ballet’s history. Two years ago, Colorado Ballet brought in the highest revenue in their history when they broke $4 million in ticket sales. This season, the company has already brought in $5.1 million in ticket sales revenue.
The 2018 production of The Nutcracker marked the all-time highest selling production in Colorado Ballet’s history, bringing in just under $3 million. Last month, the company hit its overall 2018/2019 season ticket sales revenue goal of $4.7 million and met its goal for season subscription ticket sales. Subscription sales revenue for the current season is 50 percent above last season.
With these results, Colorado Ballet continues to solidify its fiscal stability and experience substantial growth. Additionally, the company continues to shine artistically in all areas of presenting world-class productions, positioning itself to rank among the most respected and acclaimed ballet companies in the country. As a performing arts organization that continues to exceed expectations and break records, Colorado Ballet elevates dance and the performing arts in the state of Colorado and innovatively contributes to a thriving dance community, both locally and nationally. Great cities need great art, and Colorado Ballet presents excellent performing arts.
“The company’s current outstanding financial success speaks to the countless hours and years of hard work, dedication and passion invested into the company by many supporters and leaders who have given their time and talent to make this company what it is today,” stated Gil Boggs, artistic director. “I am very proud of where we are and how far we have come in the past decade. I’m exceedingly grateful to all of Colorado Ballet’s patrons, donors, trustees and dedicated dancers and staff who played a role in the success that we share today. We could not have done this without them.”
