Bringing artists from all over the world, and from almost every genre, Three Stages will offer literally hundreds of performances in the 2012-13 season.
Beginning in August, 2012 and concluding in June, 2013; world-class performers from Branford Marsalis to The Manhattan Transfer, from the Vienna Boys Choir to Natalie MacMaster, from the China National Symphony Orchestra to the Russian National Ballet Theatre, from the Pipes and Drums of the Black Watch to “Shrek The Musical,” will grace the stages at Three Stages. Complementing the stellar international lineup is a who’s who of regional arts organizations, from the El Dorado Musical Theatre to the Sacramento Guitar Society to the Folsom Symphony and more, including the Three Stages’ debut of the Sacramento Opera.
“For the upcoming 2012-13 season of performing arts, we have broadened our offerings while deepening the program overall,” noted Three Stages Executive Director Dave Pier. “The demand is there — we had over 100 sold out shows during the 2011-12 season, and we think our audience is hungry for what we can bring to Folsom.”
Tickets go on sale online — threestages.net — at 10 a.m. on Saturday, June 30, and in person/via phone — (916) 608-6888 — at 10 a.m. on July 2.
