The eleven benefits for regular customers

To become a regular customer of opera or ballet, you must acquire a season ticket. If you regularly come to performances several times a year and would like to ensure that you get a seat at future premieres, the season ticket is, ahem, just the ticket. As a season ticket holder, you will receive discounts and benefits and a designated seat in the auditorium. A season ticket is easy to use. Your season ticket will be automatically renewed for the following season as long as you confirm the booking in the spring.

  • Best seats for opera and ballet premieres
  • New benefit: 20 % discount to all other ballet and opera performances (except for guest performances, special performances and group bookings)
  • Programme booklet free of charge on the night of the performance
  • Invitations to events exclusive to season ticket holders
  • Special discounts and advance purchase opportunities
  • Ticket exchange free of charge up to 2 days before the performance (Exchange free of charge within the same price category. If exchanging for a more expensive ticket, you must pay the difference.)
  • New benefit: Exchange any one premiere production ticket for a ticket to any other performance (Exchange free of charge within the same price category. If exchanging for a more expensive ticket, you must pay the difference.)
  • Free tour behiind the scenes for you and your friends (1st Wed of every month at 14.30 and 2nd Wed of ever month at 16.30).
  • Three season brochures by mail each year
  • Current news in the newsletter (in Finnish)
  • Seat assignment carried over to the next season if your season ticket is renewed

“I go to see every new production 3 to 5 times and revival productions 1 to 2 times. I never miss children’s performances either, because I am not quite grown up yet myself.”

– Riitta Lintula, season ticket holder since 1983
