ONE ORGANIZATION IS A FLEDGING NEWCOMER, the other a seasoned veteran with an international influence that is celebrating its 30th season as one of the cultural anchors of a resurgent Omaha.

But both Ballet Nebraska and the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts see the Metro Arts Pass as a vehicle that will be a valuable tool in their marketing strategies.

The Metro Arts Pass is a “membership has its privileges” collaboration between 18 area arts and cultural organizations. Membership in one non-profit means special access to offers from all at no additional cost. Each month features new deals on tickets and other goodies. Just use your membership card from one non-profit to leverage savings with others.

Ballet Nebraska’s second season opens with the October 28 staging of Dracula at the Orpheum Theater, making it a perfect night out for some sophisticated Halloween fun. The horror classic comes on the heals of last season’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Momentum and Swing, Swing, Swing.

Metro Arts Pass holders may buy Dracula tickets for the reduced price of $50 for a pair.

“As a new company, the Metro Arts Pass has a double meaning for us,” said Erika Overturff, founder and artistic director of Nebraska’s only professional dance company. “Besides linking us to the larger arts scene and helping raise awareness about dance, it has been an important partnership where we learn from all these great participating organizations, people who are passionate about the arts. Sharing ideas and success stories with them has been invaluable and that’s already acted as a springboard to launch a new collaboration with Opera Omaha where members of the North Wind Chorus will join Ballet Nebraska for December’s The Nutcracker.”

At the Bemis Center in October, you can use any membership in a participating Metro Arts Pass group to get a free annual individual membership just in time for the 13th Annual Art Auction on October 15th and the warm-up event, the Underground Auction on October 13th.

A $35 value in and of itself, a Bemis Center membership also provides reduced ticket prices for the auctions; $25 ($35 nonmembers) for general admission and $75 ($85 non-members) for special reservations. The higher ticket value includes a cocktail preview on October 12th, a reserved seat in the live auction and access to the VIP lounge.

Featured next month in the Metro Arts Pass lineup is 10% off tickets to Omaha Performing Arts’ November 9 and 10 performances of the Aspen Santa Fe Ballet Nutcracker. And December brings 10% off all purchases in the Hitchcock Museum Shop at the Durham Museum.
