I find this so sad. This kind of art should be accessible to ALL!!!!
When I lived in Europe, I went to numerous operas in Vienna, Naples, Rome, Paris, Prague and a few other European major cities for no more than $1.25!
Granted, they were often in the back and standing room only... but, it was still an absolutely amazing experience. Oftentimes, depending on the opera house, we had to get there a few hours before the show and tie our scarves where we wanted to stand. Then, we would go out to eat and come back for the show.
Funny thing is when I was able to finally afford the better seats, it just wasn't the same kind of experience.
As for NYC Broadway shows, TKTS
was my godsend. It was through TKTS that I was able to see so many amazing plays for super discounted prices!!!
