PURCHASE TICKETS ONLINE
The quickest way to get opera tickets is online via our programme. You’ll reach it quick and easy on our website via the little calendar icon at the top right. You can filter here for any times or topics to get to the performance you want.
On the performance’s page you will then find the information on ticket prices and available ticket categories. The ticket link will take you directly to our online shop. Here, you have the option of choosing the seat you want in the seating plan and paying for the tickets by credit card, direct debit or immediate bank transfer. You then receive the tickets by e-mail as “Ticket direct” or can have them sent to your home.
For online sales we charge a processing fee of 2 euro per ticket.
Is the ticket link of the performance you're interested in not active yet? If so tickets for the event are not on sale yet. (Please note our advance sales periods for this.)
The “Request tickets” button will take you to our form for written orders, where you can reserve tickets in advance.
Please enter your contact and payment details as well as the price category you'd like. We'll inform you in good time, and before the sale for non-subscribers begins, whether your ticket request has been successful or not. If the demand exceeds our ticket quota, a lottery decides who will get the tickets – irrespective of the date when the order was received. All written orders are processed two months before the respective performance date.
For written orders we charge a processing fee of 2 euro per ticket.
