Price Advantages

Subscribers save up to 30% compared to the price of a one-way ticket. Young people under 30 years of age can book all subscription series of the Staatsoper at the special youth rate with 50% discount compared to the normal subscription price!

Your Favourite Seat

Subscribers have the same seat for all performances – except for subscriptions with a free choice of performances.

Annual Ticket Sales

Subscribers have the opportunity to purchase additional tickets for opera and ballet performances one week before the general advance sale begins. You can purchase one ticket per subscription seat in seat groups 1-7 with a 10% discount for each performance directly from the Staatsoper's ticket service or by calling (040) 35 68 68. If these additional tickets are used by children or young people up to the age of 18, they cost only € 10.00 per ticket.

NEW! Concert Tickets at Reduced Prices

Subscribers to the Staatsoper now also have the opportunity to purchase additional tickets for the concerts of the Philharmonic State Orchestra in the Elbphilharmonie one week before the start of the general advance sale. Due to high demand, ticket sales for concerts in the Great Hall are limited to a maximum of two tickets per concert program. The right to sell tickets does not apply to special concerts.

Transferable Tickets

The subscription card that entitles you to visit any of the performances you have booked is also transferable to other persons. Subscription seats acquired at the children's or youth rate can only be used by other people of the same age group.

Free ride on the HVV

Your subscription card is valid as a ticket for HVV transportation (including the express bus) on the day of your subscription for the round trip throughout the fare area.

Tickets for free by mail

In the case of postal delivery of additionally purchased tickets, the shipping fee is not applicable for subscribers.

Exchanging Tickets

If you are unable to attend on subscription dates, no problem: you can exchange all tickets for regular subscription series without limit. Just inform us of your request to exchange our subscription service by 1 pm on the previous working day (for performances on weekends, by 1 pm on Friday). The subscription card does not have to be presented for this purpose. You can then either acquire a credit in the amount of the pro-rated subscription price or use this directly to purchase a ticket for another performance. The credit is valid until the end of the season. When redeeming the credit you can usually take advantage of a discount of 10% compared to the cash price.

Order subscriptions

All subscriptions are available from the Hamburg State Opera's Ticket Office or via our online-shop. We would be happy to advise you!
