Bayerische Staatsoper Subscriptions

The subscription order for the 2020/21 season is finished. 

Information on your subscription places in the 2020/21 season

Your seats are of course still reserved for you. Subscription passes will only be sent out and invoiced as soon as play can be resumed in the planned form. Since no significant change in the situation is expected by the end of the year, we have to suspend all subscription calls until the end of the year. As a compensation, we have extended the permanent subscription discount of 20% for all performances until 31 December inclusive. Also, when processing orders (ticket contingent 1), the first 20 tickets per performance are always allocated to subscribers. At the beginning of December, a decision will be made as to whether subscription series will be cancelled for the entire season or whether a restart in spring can be expected.  Thank you very much for your loyalty and patience!

Unfortunately, gift subscriptions have to be cancelled this season. All orders for gift subscriptions are automatically cancelled.

Please also note our suppelmentary conditions.

With the Bayerische Staatsoper Subscriptions Series you visit opera, ballet and concert performances regularly, while also benefiting from the attractive subscription price with a discount of up to 35% per ticket. In addition to various Opera Subscriptions, the Staatsoper also offers a Ballet Subscription, a Concert Subscription, an under-30s Youth Subscription, as well as several Season Subscriptions.

Cancel, but don’t lose!
One performance per season can be re-booked in each Opera and Ballet Subscription. You can do this from 1 September until one week before the performance date at the latest, online, by phone, at the desk or in writing (see Subscription terms). With a re-booking you receive a virtual voucher, which is saved under your customer number. You can redeem or charge this when buying a regular ticket until the end of the respective season.

An existing subscription is extended automatically for the next season if it is not cancelled by 15 April of the current season (exception: Youth Subscription). Changes to the subscription terms are announced in good time. A subscription can be paid for in one amount in advance or in two instalments.
