FAQ Ticket Sales 20–21 Season
In the following overview we answer some of the central questions about the start of the season. If you have any further questions, please contact the visitor communication department.
Unfortunately, due to the extension of the lockdown, we have to cancel all performances with an audience on site up to and including 12 April, as well as the performances of La traviata on 9, 11 and 15 April. All special events in the Prinzregententheater and the Allerheiligen Hofkirche as well as guided tours also fall under this.
When do tickets go on sale for the rest of the season?
You can now order tickets via the schedule (ticket contingent 1):
- Orders for April are expected to be processed at short notice at the beginning of April
- Orders for May are expected to be processed at short notice in the course of April
- Orders for June are expected to be processed from 20 April
- Orders for the festival are expected to be processed from 15 March
A further contingent of tickets (ticket contingent 2) will be available for direct sale online, by telephone and at the box office on the following dates:
- All performances in April: at the beginning of April
- All performances in May: at short notice in the course of April
- All performances in June (no festival): probably from 8 May
- All performances in the festival: Resale of all remaining tickets expected from 15 May. The exact sales conditions for that day will be announced at a later date.
Please note that these dates may also be subject to further postponement. Depending on demand and availability, ticket purchases can be limited to a maximum of two tickets per order. If the quantity of tickets requested exceeds the supply, the decision will be made by lot.
Which seats are on sale?
We have defined a modified seating plan that complies with the current regulations on the spacing of cultural events and, in accordance with the specifications of the Bavarian State Government. Should there be any further modifications or aggravations in the course of time, we will adjust the seating plan accordingly and sell the tickets directly (ticket contingent 2). Basically the categories and price schemes of the regular seating plans remain valid. For ballet performances, the arrangement of the categories in the stall has been changed, as the lines of sight have changed due to the raised orchestra pit. Please indicate on the order form whether you also accept single seats. Please be aware that we had to temporarily extend our orchestra pit. Therefore your view on the stage might be limited and the distribution of price categories in the stalls are subject to change.
What else should I bear in mind when visiting?
Detailed information about your visit will be sent to you by e-mail in good time before the performance. They will tell you what to take into account on admission, whether there will be a break and gastronomic offers and whether you will have to wear a mouth-and-nose cover during the performance - depending on the valid regulations.
Every ticket purchase is personalized, an anonymous purchase at the box office is unfortunately not possible in the current situation. It is not necessary to register the specific visitors, but as a buyer you are obliged to be able to name the visitors of the performance. Please forward the information about the visit to the actual visitors and take note of our current supplementary conditions.
Please also note that due to the current situation there may be cast changes and changes in the schedule of the productions shown - thanks for your flexibility!
How do I get my money back?
All sold tickets will be automatically charged back by our team. We kindly ask for a little patience, because the repayment can take up to two weeks.

What happens with the subscription?
All subscriptions in the 2020-21 season are cancelled. Your seats will of course remain reserved for you - also for the 2021-22 season. As compensation, we have extended the permanent subscription discount of 20% for all performances until the regular season (no festival). You will receive this discount on up to two tickets per production and subscription customer number. Also, when processing orders (ticket contingent 1), the first 20 tickets per production of the regular season will continue to be allocated to subscribers.
I already ordered tickets for the new season some time ago, is this order still valid?
All orders that are not affected by a change of schedule remain valid. If there are any changes or questions from our side, we will contact you. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact our Visitor Communication Department.
I have a voucher that expires at the end of 2020. How long can I still use it?
Vouchers valid until 31.12.2020 are automatically extended until 31.12.2021. You don't need to do anything else and can redeem the voucher as usual for a purchase online at the counter or by telephone until the end of 2021.
What can I do if I cannot attend a performance after all?
If you have bought tickets for a performance but are unable to attend, please use our Ticket Exchange Platform. Please make sure to exchange contact details with the buyer when selling your tickets via the Ticket Exchange so that we can name the visitors to the performance in case we need to.
