Subscriptions

Advantages

As a Zurich Opera House subscription holder, you enjoy many advantages

Convenience
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.

Savings
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.

Exclusively informed
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.

Subscriptions 20/21

The subscription cycles are available for days of the week or genres, and in all price categories.

Order your subscription online.
