New Orleans, Louisiana (PRWEB) November 12, 2014 -- In time for the holiday season, two hotels of the prestigious New Orleans Hotel Collection have announced new theater packages to help support the burgeoning theater revival of the city. As longtime supporters and official hotels of the New Orleans Fringe Theatre Fest, the Joy Theatre, the NOCCA Broadway Series and the Opera, New Orleans Hotel Collection hotels have frequently played hosts to Broadway and cinema stars, famous musicians and the theater glitterati.
In an effort to continue promotion and support of local, home grown theater options, the two hotels have partnered with both the New Orleans Opera Association and the Joy Theatre for upcoming events on each theaters schedule for 2014 and into early 2015.
The performance group Lightwire, which originated in New Orleans, will be performing a show entitled “A Very Electric Christmas” on Wednesday, December 23, 2014 at the Joy Theatre on Canal Street. The Joy Theatre is the first of the theater renewals along Canal Street that have brought life and activity back to a part of the city that boasted only vacant and abandoned buildings prior to the re-opening of the Joy.
The performance of Lightwire has been packaged with a comfortable overnight hotel room at the nearby Dauphine Orleans Hotel for guests wanting to make a holiday night out in the city. The package includes two (2) premium tickets, a double guest room, breakfast for two, two welcome drinks, plus overnight parking for one car complete this convenient holiday season package. The package rate of $192 provides a cost fully half off the cost of the component pieces. For reservations for the special performance and overnight package, please call 800-521-7111 and ask for the “Lightwire-Joy” group.
Continuing the season of theater packages, the Bourbon Orleans Hotel of the New Orleans Hotel Collection, as the official preferred hotels of the Opera, has partnered with the New Orleans Opera Association to promote local performance packages for two outstanding Opera matinees. The New Orleans Opera 2014-2015 season is underway and the Bourbon Orleans Hotel is a proud hotel sponsor of the season.
The hotel has deep ties with the early history of opera in New Orleans. The Théâtre d’Orléans, which the historic Orleans Ballroom was part of, was the premier venue for regular operatic seasons in the antebellum period prior to the Civil War.
Billed as a “take the elevator home” package, the shows included are Sunday matinees, which can be followed by dinner and then an overnight stay with parking at the delightful, totally authentic Bourbon Orleans Hotel.
Book a Sunday stay for the upcoming shows this season at the Mahalia Jackson Theater and receive two (2) show tickets, complimentary valet parking, welcome cocktails at Bourbon “O”, Wi-Fi, a $100 dinner certificate and an autographed copy of Una Vida – A Fable of Music and the Mind by Nicolas Bazan, M.D.
Opera matinee dates are:
• Rusalka - November 16, 2014
• Lucia di Lamermoor - March 15, 2015
• The Marriage of Figaro - April 12, 2015
