Tickets for kids and families


Opera and ballet are an experience for the whole family. For selected performances we therefore offer family performances with binding age ratings. Children and young people under 18 accompanied by an adult pay € 10 on all seats.

The Bayerische Staatsoper offers a kids’ introduction for € 3 before all family performances, i.e. 45 minutes before the show begins.


Order kids’ tickets up to one month before the performance via the “Order tickets” link in our programme
As soon as the sale of tickets for non-subscribers begins, kids’ tickets can only be purchased at our box office or by phone:

Bayerische Staatsoper Box Office
Marstallplatz 5
80539 Munich
[email protected]
+49 89 21 85 19 20
Hours: Mon – Sat, 10 am to 7 pm

Kids’ tickets are only issued in combination with at least one “adult” ticket. Unfortunately a combination of price categories is not possible, unless the places are beside one another.


In the 2021/2022 season our KIDS & CO kids’ programme also brings empathetic and entertaining productions to the stage especially for the littlest ones. 
You’ll find all productions listed here and order the tickets just as normal via the tickets link in the programme or at our box office. Please note our instructions for ticket sales for this.

In our three-hour SpielOpera and SpielBallet workshops kids or families with kids are introduced in a playfully way to opera and ballet works.

Tickets are ordered via this SpielOpera/SpielBallet order form. The ticket costs € 18 per child. The workshop is limited to 30 (opera) and 18 (ballet) participants. Processing begins one month before the requested date. We will send you an e-mail telling you if our purchase has been successful or not. Please note that the age ratings are binding.
