Frequently Asked Questions

My schedule changes a lot. Should I still buy season tickets?

YES! Season ticket holders can exchange their tickets for any other performance of the same opera with no fees. Just call us or request an exchange online any time after you receive your tickets and before 4:00 PM on the day of your performance (for Sunday matinee performances exchanges must be requested by 4:00 PM the previous day). There are no fees for ticket exchanges; however, upgrade charges may apply if you are changing to a more expensive day of the week or seat location.

How much will I save?

When you purchase more than one performance at a time through one of our season ticket packages, we offer substantial savings to you: up to 35% off the individual tickets. Combine that with payment plans for a low monthly payment!

How do I use payment plans?

Convenient automatic payment plans allow you to spread your payments over several months, an option popular with our subscribers paying by credit card. It's flexible and free—no interest or additional service charges.

You can set up your interest-free payments when you order online or call Audience Services at 206.389.7676 from 10 AM to 6 PM Monday through Friday. At a minimum, your payment today must include the $20 down payment. Payment plans may only be set up using a credit or debit card. We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover. We are only able to accept one credit card for this payment. The card must be valid through one month past the last scheduled payment. Your final payment must be scheduled at least two weeks prior to the start of the first opera in your season ticket package.

You may contact Audience Services at 206.389.7676 or tickets@seattleopera.org to change the arrangements of your payment plan at any time as long as your final payment is scheduled at least two weeks prior to the start of the first opera in your subscription. With our convenient automatic payment plan there is no need to call or send back an invoice to us; your card will automatically be charged on the days set up for the payment plan.

If you select a payment plan, your season tickets will be mailed after your final payment is made.

Can I buy season tickets for less than $200?

Absolutely! Our most affordable days of the week to attend are Wednesday and Friday evenings. Three-opera packages start at just $162. Maximize your savings with a  5-opera package starting at $225 on Wednesdays (that's just $45 per opera!).

Under 40? Consider joining BRAVO!, our group for young professionals. Your $85 annual membership fee quickly pays for itself with season tickets at a 50% discount, free wine and coffee at intermission receptions, and invitations to parties all year.

Student or Senior? Students save 50% off single ticket prices when purchasing season tickets, and seniors get extra discounts too. Call Audience Services at 206.389.7676 for more information.

Can I buy just 3 or 4 operas?

Yes! When you start a subscription order, you'll be prompted to choose your operas and dates, then your seating section. To purchase a 3- or 4-opera package simply uncheck the operas you do not wish to include in your subscription.
