DAYTON, OH (June 10, 2014) – On Monday, June 16, 2014, The Dayton Performing Arts Alliance announces the opening of single ticket sales for the 2014-2015 New Horizons Season, including performances for all three art forms – Dayton Philharmonic, Dayton Ballet, and Dayton Opera.  For the bold new 2014–2015 New Horizons Season, the Dayton Performing Arts Alliance transports performing arts fans to an exciting world of emotion and imagination.  Performance series sponsors for the upcoming season include Premier Health, Kettering Health Network, the DP&L Company Foundation, and Dr. Charles and Patricia Demirjian.

Great symphonies, spectacular concertos, and a range of orchestral genres are lined up for the Classical Series presented by the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra. Artistic Director and Conductor Neal Gittleman will be on the podium to present works from famous composers such as Mozart, Mahler, and Berlioz, with a special nod this season to Russian composers like Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff.  For those who love Russian music, this season is a treasure trove.  Then, to honor Benjamin Britten on the anniversary of his 100th birthday, DPO welcomes Keith Lockhart of the Boston Pops to conduct the War Requiem.

From the lighthearted to the deeply moving, Dayton Ballet, under the leadership of Artistic Director Karen Russo Burke, covers a landscape of thrilling dance, including two exquisite repertory shows, the holiday tradition of The Nutcracker, and Peter Pan performed for the first time with the full Dayton Philharmonic.

The Dayton Opera, under the leadership of Artistic Director Thomas Bankston, presents a daring, bold, and wide-ranging season comprising the Season Opening Spectacular “Russian Panorama”, Mozart’s mystical and mirthful singspiel The Magic Flute, the thought-provoking and deeply moving Dead Man Walking, and George Bizet’s exotic The Pearl Fishers. 

The DPAA continues its innovation of presenting Signature Events - performances that combine the power of all three art forms. The spectacular “Russian Panorama” opens the season, “Classical Destinations” marks the halfway point at New Year’s Eve, and The Pearl Fishers completes the Opera series in April.

The Dayton Philharmonic is pleased to provide the orchestral foundation for the ongoing exploration of rock music in its Rockin’ Orchestra Series, and the DPO welcomes for the first time to the Schuster Center the Grammy-winning duo Indigo Girls in June 2015.

The cherished classics are also presented in this upcoming season.  Beloved classical and SuperPops performances return to the Schuster, including jazz great John Pizzarelli and the timeless Original Motion Picture Singin in the Rain, with score provided by the full DPO.  The DPAA also presents such seasonal events as PhilharMonster, Hometown Holidays, and Messiah.

An important part of the New Horizons Season is the innovative experiences being presented by DPAA.  Composer-in-Residence Stella Sung teams with Karen Russo Burke for the world premiere of an exciting new ballet in February 2015; Dayton Opera brings Dead Man Walking to the Midwest for the first time in over a decade; and Neal Gittleman creates a thematic arch for all four Classical Connections concerts, now performed on Sundays, with a Graeter’s ice cream social following each performance.

Nowhere else in the nation can you experience a dramatic collaboration of the arts with the range and depth of performances and new experiences that the Dayton Performing Arts Alliance has prepared for this upcoming season.

About the Dayton Performing Arts Alliance

The Dayton Performing Arts Alliance was formed in July 2012 as the result of a groundbreaking and innovative merger between the Dayton Ballet, the Dayton Opera, and the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra. Together, they are the largest performing arts organization in the community, offering a tremendous variety of performance and education programs and setting a new standard for artistic excellence.  Dayton Performing Arts Alliance performances are made possible in part by Montgomery County and Culture Works, the single largest source of community funds for the arts and culture in the Miami Valley. The Dayton Performing Arts Alliance also receives partial funding from the Ohio Arts Council, a state agency created to foster and encourage the development of the arts and to preserve Ohio's cultural heritage. Funding from the Ohio Arts Council is an investment of state tax dollars that promotes economic growth, educational excellence, and cultural enrichment for all Ohio residents.   The Dayton Performing Arts Alliance is also the proud recipient of a 12-13 season grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
