Find yourself on the seating plan

By clicking on the dots of the seating map, you can compare the view of the stage from different sides of the auditorium. You will find the exact seating map with seat numbers via the links.

Please note that the guard rail may restrict visibility towards the sides of the first row in the 2nd balcony and the first row in the 3rd balcony. The Swedish and English surtitling is partly obscured when viewed from the leftmost and rightmost seats in row 19 in the stalls (seats 698–700 and 725–727).

An induction loop has been installed in the stalls of the main auditorium. Explore the acoustics map of the induction loop.

Gift voucher

Give a friend or family member an evening at the opera or ballet. The best thing about a gift voucher is that you do not need to think about which production and which performance to buy tickets for; a gift voucher may be redeemed for tickets to any performance. This voucher is valid for at least 6 months after the date of purchase. You can purchase a gift voucher for any amount. You can buy and use the vouchers at the Opera Box Office and, until the 31st of May 2018, at the full-service tickets agents of Lippupiste (not in the online shop or R-kioski outlets). If the value of the gift voucher is greater than the purchase price, the remaining sum of the gift voucher can be used later. A new gift voucher will be made for the remaining sum. Lippupiste ticket agents charge a service fee of €1 for the new gift voucher.

Special tickets

Lucky Dip

Lucky Dip is a new, affordable ticket for weekday nights that is excellent if you are not particularly choosy about where exactly you want to sit. We guarantee a good seat worth at least EUR 65 for a ticket price of EUR 40–50. You can buy the ticket at any time, but you will not be assigned a seat until the day of the performance. Lucky Dip tickets are sold on a first come, first served basis, so act fast!

Flexi-Ticket for EUR 10 more

The best-laid plans sometimes go wrong. Sometimes you just can’t make it to our performance as planned, and we fully understand that. That’s why we’ve introduced the 10-euro Flexi-Ticket feature, available upon purchasing your performance ticket. The Flexi-Ticket allows you to exchange your ticket for another one of the same price (or higher at an additional cost), for either the same or a different production, up to two days before the date of the performance. The Flexi-Ticket is available for regular, youth, student and pensioner tickets.
