Ticket Fees Explained

The City Opera House charges fees on each ticket,  which vary by the method in which they are purchased. Here’s a detailed explanation:

Buying tickets in person at the Box Office

The Box Office is open Monday through Friday, 10 am to 5 pm, and one hour before the event. This option charges the lowest fees at $2.50 per ticket—this is a facility fee which funds maintenance of the Opera House, along with general upkeep and improvements. No matter how you buy a ticket, you’ll always pay the $2.50 facility fee.

Buying tickets by phone

Each ticket is charged a $2.50 facility fee plus a $5 fee for the complete order (regardless of the number of tickets or number of performances purchased). This is an economical and convenient way to buy tickets. The friendly Opera House staff mans the phone lines Monday through Friday, 10 am to 5 pm. Call 231-941-8082, ext. 201.

A poetry collection that laments the world’s troubles, while inviting a spiritual response of hope, love and gratitude

While Walker hardly requires an introduction, her genius bears repeating. One of America’s most cherished writers, she has brought us novels, poems, and nonfiction works of the utmost artistic and social importance. In 1983, Walker received the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction for her novel  The Color Purple,  becoming the first African-American woman to receive the honor. The book has since been adapted into an Academy-Award nominated film and a Broadway musical.

Her staggering capacity for truth and warmth feature centrally in her work. Her latest book of collected poetry,  Arrow Out of the Heart, is no exception. Presented in both English and Spanish and comprising almost 70 poems, each lush and lucid word brims with passion and power. The collection proves, once again, the tendency of Walker’s wisdom to sear readers’ hearts, leaving its mark far beyond the last page.
