As a Zurich Opera House subscription holder, you enjoy many advantages
With a subscription, you have fixed seats without having to queue at the Box Office. You choose your seats before general advance tickets sales begin. In the case of subscription cycles, you may be allocated a seat different from your regular one for certain performances.
Compared with regular ticket prices on general sale, we guarantee you savings of about 10% (except for the Première A and Lieder subscription). If you would like to order individual tickets in addition to your subscription, you will also benefit from a 10% discount off up to four tickets per performance in price categories A-F , P and Q.
Information, hot off the press
The despatch of the monthly programme is included in the price of your subscription.
The Director and Ballet Director invite you to an exclusive presentation of the seasonal programme, after which you will have the opportunity to make conversation with employees of the Opera House.
Our individual subscriptions enable you to put your subscription together yourself.

Subscription conditions 20/21
Subscription prices are based on the ticket prices of the performances in question, less a subscription discount of approximately 10% (excluding Première subscription A). The service fee for subscriptions is included in the price.
Parents who have purchased a Sunday Afternoon, Concert or La Scintilla subscription can buy the same subscription for their children under the age of 16 at student rates.
Subscriptions for senior citizens/the disabled
Recipients of old-age and disability pensions are eligible for a 50% discount on Sunday Afternoon, Concert and La Scintilla subscriptions. If subscriptions are given to persons who are not the recipients of old-age or disability pensions, the difference to the normal price must be paid and a valid ticket obtained at the Box Office before the performance.
Renewal of existing subscriptions
If the subscription contract according to the invoice that we send to you by beginning of June 2020 is not cancelled in writing by 25 June 2020, it will be considered valid – recognising the conditions of the subscription – for the 2020/21 season. Please pay the invoice by 5 July 2020. Your subscription card and tickets will be sent to you in August or September 2020.
You will be informed of the seats allocated to you and receive the final invoice from June 2020.
Those interested in applying for new subscriptions are requested to inform the Opera House’s Subscription Service of their desired subscription(s) in writing, either by using the order form or the online form. Applications will be processed in the order in which they arrive. New subscription holders will be informed of their seat allocation and receive their invoices by June 2020.
You will receive your subscription ID card (for continuing subscriptions), or tickets, for the subscription performances of your choice in August or September 2020. Subscription tickets are transferrable. A processing fee of CHF 10 per seat will be charged in the event of loss of the subscription ID card.
Non-attendance and subsctiption substitution
No refunds will be made for non-attendance. Exchanges for a replacement performance of the same production will be allowed, provided that a suitable seat is available (free of charge for the 20/21 season). The exchange can be made from mid-September 2020 at the earliest. If the substitute performance is in a higher price category, the difference must be paid.
Changes without prior notice
We expressly reserve the right to make changes without prior notice to prices, performances and casts, postpone both the dates and times of performances, and alter the seating plan for artistic reasons or in the event of television recordings. Please consult our monthly schedule or our the production pages of this website for definitive starting times.
Changes of address
Please inform us of any changes of address in writing.
By signing or renewing a subscription, you declare that you agree with these terms and conditions.
