Buying tickets at Bayerische Staatsoper

AT ANY TIME FROM PUBLICATION OF THE SCHEDULE

You can easily place binding orders in writing as of now using the online form on the online schedule.

Three months before the performance date, all orders will be processed and half of all available tickets will be allocated. If demand exceeds the available ticket contingent, tickets will be allocated at random. If we are unable to fulfill your ticket request, we will notify you in writing. Orders can only be cancelled as long as processing has not yet begun.

TWO MONTHS IN ADVANCE

Two months prior to each performance, online, telephone and over-the-counter sales of the second quality half of all available tickets will begin at 10am. If the date falls on a Sunday or public holiday, sales begin on the working day before. Here you can select your own seats in the seating plan and either have the tickets sent to you or print them out at home as a Ticketdirect or show them as a QR code on your smartphone.

PROCESSING FEE

For written orders as well as ticket purchases by phone and online, a processing fee or system fee of 2 € per ticket will be charged.
