Are you looking for an elegant way to ring in the new year? Try waltzing over to the Schuster Center for the third Signature Event of the Dayton Performing Arts Alliance’s “Ascend” season, for the New Year’s Eve: A Viennese Celebration. If you have other plans at midnight, or an early babysitter – no worries! This event lasts till 10pm!
During this performance, all three members of the DPAA —dancers from the Dayton Ballet, vocalists from the Dayton Opera, and the instrumentalists of the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra—combine their abundant talents for an artistic celebration second-to-none.
The New Year’s Eve traditions you’ve come to love and anticipate will again be part of the evening’s festivities: delicious food-by-the-bite in the Wintergarden beforehand, a flute of champagne at intermission, and a colorful climactic balloon drop. All of these have made this evening in the Mead Theatre the essential place to be on New Year’s Eve in Dayton.
It’s an excellent option for those looking for an end-of-year tradition that favors the 8 pm to 10 pm time and sets the tone for whatever else you might want to do that night before the ball drops.
Reserve your seats early! Tickets range from $19 to $65.
