  • Super Why Live: You've Got the Power!
    Since opening with a Frank Sinatra performance in 1990, the stadium now known as Times Union Center has seen more than 15 million guests pass through its turnstiles. That’s only slightly smaller than the population of the Netherlands and roughly equal to the number of people worldwide who enjoy candy corn. Besides attracting such entertainment titans as the Rolling Stones, U2, Disney’s “On Ice” series, and the Harlem Globetrotters, the multifunction arena is also home to the AHL’s Albany Devils and college basketball’s Siena Saints.

  • Ballet Theatre of Ohio
    In its 18th season, the Ballet Theatre of Ohio stages full-length classical ballet starring both youth and adult dancers. Pre-show melodies will billow from the Akron Civic Theatre’s "Mighty Wurlitzer" organ, which rises from beneath the stage like an undead piano to serenade settling guests with festive holiday music. Along with the spectacle of the performance, bask in the magnificence of the historic theater itself, whose interior was designed to resemble a Moorish castle interior. European antiques, Italian sculptures, and a ceiling set with drifting clouds and twinkling star lights craft an atmosphere ready to boil over with holiday magic.

Scribed by the quail-feathered fingers of a musical genius, Bach’s St. Matthew Passion will serenade souls when sounding out from the formidable vocal cords of the Masterworks Chorale with accompaniment by six soloists, a double orchestra, and petite vocalists from the Children’s Choir Program. Nestle into a grand-tier chair for immediate acoustic digesting or an orchestra spot for direct eye contact with the conductor.
