Attendance At NY City Ballet In Saratoga: It’s Down, It’s Up

“The Saratoga Performing Arts Center announced today that it pulled in 24 percent more people on a per-performance basis for this summer’s residency of the New York City Ballet, which concluded Saturday night. Total attendance dropped by 18 percent, from about 42,000 people in 2008 to 35,000 this year, but because City Ballet’s stay was shortened to two weeks instead of three, the per-performance audience average climbed.”
