Tucson Performing Arts

For a city of its size, Tucson is abuzz with cultural activity. It's one of only 14 cities in the United States with a symphony as well as opera, theater, and ballet companies. Wintertime, when Tucson's population swells with vacationers, is the high season, but the arts are alive and well year-round. The low cost of Tucson's cultural events comes as a pleasant surprise to those accustomed to paying

East or West Coast prices: concert tickets are as little as $20 for some performances, and touring Broadway musicals can often be seen for $35. Parking is plentiful and frequently free.

The free Tucson Weekly (www.tucsonweekly.com) and the "Caliente" section of the Arizona Daily Star (www.azstarnet.com) both hit the stands on Thursday, and have listings of what's going on in town.
