The Show Must Go Online!
Duke Performances is excited to continue our virtual season – The Show Must Go Online! High-quality, commissioned films featuring artists originally slated for in-person performances will premiere on Vimeo for ticket holders. Each film, shot following local safety protocols, is made in collaboration with an audio and video crew in each artist’s home city. General admission tickets are $20; Duke student tickets are free.
