Buy a season ticket to become one of the regulars at the Opera and Ballet. If you visit us more than once a year, you might be interested in a season ticket. Our season ticket customers always get to see every new production. A season ticket secures you a seat at performances of awaited new productions and includes a number of other substantial benefits. A season ticket is easy to use. The season ticket means less hassle, too, as it’s automatically renewed for every season. All we need from you is a confirmation each spring.

The programme for the 2017–2018 season has now been published. There are both wonderful classics and fresh new additions to the repertoire, including two Finnish world premieres in honour of the centenary of Finland’s independence: Höstsonaten – Autumn Sonata, with world-famous mezzosoprano Anne Sofie von Otter in the lead, and the ballet extravaganza Kalevalanmaa.

The new season tickets for season 2017-2018 are on sale now. Buy your own at Lippu.fi webstore.

“When I buy a season ticket I don’t need to remember getting tickets several times a year or worry about seat availability on my days of choice. I love being able to schedule my opera and ballet visits in advance for the entire year.”
