Season Subscriptions                                Buy A Subscription

Season subscribers enjoy the following benefits:

  • SEAT SECURITY!– A subscription means keeping your subscriber seats, providing you the opportunity to mix, mingle, and catch up with your subscriber community. Renew by August 13th to keep your seats!
  • VALUE– Subscribers enjoy our lowest base ticket price. Additional single tickets are available at a 15% discount. We always try our best to place your family & friends as close to your subscription seats as possible, or, if seats are available, we can move you to a spot where you can all sit together.
  • BEST SEATS IN THE HOUSE – As a subscriber you have the first chance to relocate and/or upgrade to a better available seat.  When you renew, the Box Office will see if any better seating options or upgrades are available.
  • SUBSCRIBERS FIRST– Advance notice of special concerts and events prior to the general public.
  • FREE TICKET EXCHANGES– We will happily switch you to another performance within the same production for free! (Subject to seat availability. Requests must be received at least 24 hours before curtain of the opening performance.)
  • TICKET INSURANCE– Misplaced your tickets? We will replace them at no cost!
  • TICKET DONATION– If you find you cannot attend a production, you can get a tax donation for the value of your tickets by donating them back to the Opera!
  • EMAIL REMINDERS– Subscribers receive email reminders one week prior to each opera performance with everything you’ll need to know, including events leading up to the operas, running time, and even a weather forecast.


  • Renew your Season Subscription between now and June 1st to have the best opportunity to upgrade your seat location.
  • Your current seats will be held until August 15th at which time they will revert to open seating and made available to new Subscribers.
  • Send in your renewal form as soon as possible, or call the Box Office 504.529.3000 Monday through Friday 9:00 to 4:30. Take advantage of the payment plan, if you wish. There is no extra charge for this service!
