In creating the dream world of Marc Chagall at Selby Gardens, there is an intention for visitors to experience the grounds using all of their five senses. To add to the sights and senses of the horticultural and art displays of the exhibition, sounds and palpable experiences created by a variety of cultural performances will add to the sensory experience throughout the six months.
Performances will be held in partnership with Perlman Music Program/Suncoast, Asolo Repertory Theatre, the Sarasota Ballet, the Sarasota Opera and the Sarasota Orchestra beginning in February and concluding in June 2017.
Each evening performance (except the Asolo Theatre performance) will include full access to the Gardens, hors d’oeuvres and a complimentary craft cocktail, wine or beer.
Tickets are $50 Guests, $40 Members. CLICK ON LINKS BELOW TO PURCHASE TICKETS.
