Ticket buyers who are seated in the Live Cast Ticket section will have the option to participate in New Ballet Live Casting, a new ballet-watching experience allowing audience members to listen to professional commentary, through earbuds, during a live performance. Commentary will include personal anecdotes, interviews with dancers and historical background to provide a behind-the-scenes experience of the performance, creating a more meaningful connection and personal engagement for the audience. The New Ballet Live Cast experience will provide a voice that humanizes the ballet, making it more relatable to all. To participate, please be sure to bring your fully-charged phone and earbuds, and you will be provided a dial-in number before the performance. Enjoy what Metro Silicon Valley called "The most Silicon Valley thing to ever happen to ballet!"
