Spoleto Festival USA returns to the Holy City this spring for three weeks of all the best international performing arts you can find, well, anywhere. From May 22-June 7 the city hosts 33 different shows — from a specially commissioned opera to world class jazz to some gravity-defying physical theater.

Tickets will be available to the public starting on Wed. Jan. 15 at 10 a.m.

While our Spoleto preview should give you a pretty good idea of what’s on the docket this year, we will note that there are some shows that may sell faster than others. If you’re eyeing a show that’s only here for one night or in a more intimate venue (Woolfe Street Playhouse, hint hint), you’ll want to snag those tickets sooner rather than later.
