Farm to Ballet!
August 5 @ 6:30 pm
8/5/ 2017, 4:15 p.m.:
The sun is shining and the performance will go on as planned! The grass where you will be sitting will likely be wet. We would recommend planning accordingly. Bring chairs. Bring a tarp to place under your blanket.
Tickets are no longer available online, but can be purchased at the door!
Grab your blanket, picnic basket, and the entire family to experience Farm to Ballet – an early evening, full-length ballet performance at 6:30 p.m. – farm opens at 5:30! This colorful program reinterprets classical ballet pieces to tell the story of three seasons on a Vermont farm – accompanied by a live string sextet playing Vivaldi.
Doors open at 5:30 p.m. for exploring the operating dairy farm, featuring the Jersey herd, draft horses, sheep, oxen, and chickens. Pack a picnic or snack on a Billings Farm Picnic, which includes the farm’s own 100% raw milk cheddar cheese (made from milk produced exclusively from the Billings Jersey herd), crackers, and fresh fruit while you enjoy the performance! Hot and cold beverages and Vermont-made ice cream will be available at the dairy bar and Billings Farm’s prizewinning cheddar cheese may also be purchased. Proceeds from Farm to Ballet ticket sales will support the farm’s educational programming.
General admission: $15; general admission plus a $10 donation: $25; general admission plus a $20 donation: $35. Children 12 & under are free.

Rain Plan: if weather conditions do not permit, the performance will be cancelled. We’ll make every effort to perform outdoors, but if cancellation is necessary, ticket holders may donate their ticket price to the cause, refund their ticket, or exchange their ticket for another show.
