As a response to British Columbia’s recent arts budget cuts, Vancouver’s battery opera will charge $267.67 per ticket for its remount of -LIVES WERE AROUND ME-, a guided tour taking place November 7th and 24th, and December 1st, 8th and 15th. The high ticket price is intended to reflect the actual costs of creating a production, and to comment on the function of public funding for the arts. If patrons cannot afford tickets, the company will accept donations on a first-come first-served basis. (http://www.batteryopera.com/works/lives-were-around-me/).
