Special Discount for Our Readers to the Nutcracker by Ballet Arizona

I may have mentioned in the past that my wife is on the Board of Ballet Arizona.  Phoenix has a reputation as a cultural wasteland, but our Ballet is certainly an exception to this.  Our artistic director Ib Andersen is fabulous, garnering top reviews even from the fussy New York press.  We have several young dancers, including one young lady who recently defected from Cuba, who are astonishing and whom you should frankly come see now before they are lured away to the bright lights of New York or Washington.

Anyway, they have a promotion running for the Nutcracker this holiday season and have allowed me to offer this same promotion to our readers, with discounts up to 50% on tickets.  See this pdf for details: Link Fixed to Ballet Arizona Offer.

    Not that I have anything against the arts, but I think they often represent a form of cargo-cult urban planning (similar to sports teams).

    City councilor's logic:

    1. Great cities all have a (select one: ballet, symphony, gallery, museum, live theater, hockey arena, monorail).
    2. If we sponsor and build a (ballet, symphony, gallery, museum, live theater, hockey arena, monorail), then we will become a great city.
    Therefore I support using taxpayers' funds to build a (ballet, symphony, gallery, museum, live theater, hockey arena, monorail) in this soon to be great city.

    The same "logic" is again applied when the (ballet, symphony, gallery, museum, live theater, hockey arena, monorail) finds that it is not commercially viable and comes begging for ongoing subsidies.
