Pre-Performance Talks are free to all ticket holders. These half-hour talks and conversations with UC Davis faculty, local experts and visiting artists provide context for our audience. One of the most popular programs we offer, most talks are recorded for podcast following the performance.
Pre-performance talks begin ONE HOUR before the performance. Check the event website for details and speakers.
Developing deeper relationships with artists, arts organizations and our campus community enriches our programming and enhances the experiences of our audience. These free presentations by UC Davis faculty and local arts experts, and occasionally the artist themselves provide aesthetic, historical and social context on selected artists. You can anticipate important information about all performance enhancements in your EventMail email that you receive before any event for which you have purchased tickets.
