Ballet dancers' strong legs are the goal of budding ballerinas, the muse of renowned impressionist artists, and the impossible dream of gangly high-jumping frogs. Go green with envy with today's Groupon for tickets to a performance of the Trey McIntyre Project at the Vail International Dance Festival. The performance is Friday, August 12, at 7:30 p.m. and will be held at the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater. Choose between the following options:
- For $31, you get two lawn tickets (a $44 value, including service charges) and two glasses of champagne (an $18 value; a $62 total value).
- For $71, you get two reserved tickets in sections 1 or 4 (a $124 value, including service charges) and two glasses of champagne (an $18 value; a $142 total value).
Now in its 23rd year, the Vail International Dance Festival electrifies internationally sourced audiences with two weeks of dance-powered stage shows in a pastoral mountain setting. Debuting at the festival in 2005, the Trey McIntyre Project sweeps dancers across the stage, wowing crowds with athletic agility, exciting modern music, and the performers' ability to soar from the stage to the concession stand in a single graceful bound. At the open-air Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater, sun-drenched seats on the grassy hillside bestow audiences with views of the Rocky Mountains' natural splendor and trees' laughably artificial hairpieces. Seating is first come, first served on the lawn, and spectators are welcome to bring picnic items, including sealed nonalcoholic beverages. Only legless chairs are permitted.
Opt for reserved seating in sections 1 and 4 to get shelter from the moon's jealous glances while goggling at the dance-derived feats onstage. Ample concessions may be purchased from amphitheater vendors to fuel handspring ovations.
