Donor Ticketing

Update to Donor Ticketing Dates

We are heartbroken to report that Covid-19 has forced the cancellation of the 2020 season.

Though we are known as a summer performance venue, Ravinia is a year-round organization with a nonprofit mission that extends beyond the stage. In fact, even without our summer season, the expenses required to operate our Reach Teach Play education programs, our summer conservatory Ravinia’s Steans Music Institute, Bennett Gordon Hall concerts through February, park maintenance, and all of the planning and preparation our staff carried out since the end of the 2019 season, will leave us with an $8 million shortfall even after the initial phases of our Annual Fund campaign.

2020 Society LogoThe Annual Fund is our sole means to meet these needs, and your 2020 gift will help us maintain our commitments. Join the "2020 Society" by making a gift today to ensure the festival's joyous return in 2021. Among other commemorations, donors making contributions of $100 or more will receive special recognition in our 2021 program books.

Donors Get First Access to Tickets!

Opus ($4,000) level and above

  • Reserved seats in each of our venues are assigned based on the level of your support.
  • Within each level, seating is assigned according to the date your request is received.
  • Due to the limited supply of seats, we cannot guarantee that all requests will be filled in their entirety.
  • While we do our best to accommodate all of our generous donors, due to high demand, tickets are not guaranteed. Historically, Marquee ($2,000) donors have received two seats together to any concert they requested tickets to, and higher levels have had access to additional tickets.
  • Opus donors receive a season lawn pass, which admits two people to the lawn for all performances—even sold-out ones!—all season long (excluding the Gala concert and events not broadcast to the lawn). Donors at the Guarantor ($7,000) level and above receive two passes.
  • At the Opus level and above, donors also get the best Ravinia experience with season priority parking just steps from our venues and more exclusive perks!
