Easy Payment Plans

Just 50% down secures your series with no additional processing or handling fees.

Your Own Personal Seats

Subscribers may renew their seats for all the seasons to come — that’s why lifelong friendships often develop with subscriber neighbors.

Easy Exchanges

If your schedule changes, it’s easy to exchange your seats online or via phone for another date of the same opera. Fees may apply; no fees for 8-opera subscribers with five days notice excluding Value Series.


When you subscribe for a 4-, 5-, or 6-opera series, you may customize your series with TRADEONE. This allows you to trade one opera in your series for one that is not. Just let us know which opera you want to trade when you subscribe or after you receive your tickets. Fees apply.

Children’s Prices for Every Opera

Children’s tickets are $20-$50 depending on your seat location. We’ll arrange your subscription seating so that you will all sit together.

Flexibility: Create Your Own Series

Can’t find a series that fits your needs? Pick the operas you want on dates that you can attend, and still save up to 40%. Please note that your exact seat location will differ from date to date.

Advance Ordering Privileges and Priority Seating for Special Events

Subscribers get early access to purchase tickets to one-night-only events, like Plácido Domingo and Ana María Martínez in Concert, and Dmitri Hvorostovsky in Recital.

Year-long subscriber discount on additional opera and musical tickets

Every opera and musical performance, all year long, you’ll receive a non-expiring subscriber discount of 10% on additional tickets. New this year, 8-opera subscribers receive 25% off all additional tickets to operas and The King and I through the April 1 renewal deadline — buy early and save!
