How to buy tickets
In advance
Tickets for all performances in the 2022/23 season are on sale.

Buying tickets online
The quickest way to buy a ticket: simply select the performance of your choice from our repertoire and book your tickets at our webshop (you can pay by credit card or direct debit with SSL-encrypted transfer of all customer, order and payment details).

Digital tickets: Ticket Direct
In the webshop, select "Ticket Direct: Digital Ticket": Your tickets will be made available to you free of charge as a pdf file and as a wallet link by e-mail. The shipping price (see below) does not apply.

You can, but do not have to, bring your digital ticket in printed form with you when you enter: It is perfectly sufficient to show the PDF or Wallet ticket on your smartphone.

Our digital tickets currently do not include a VRR travel permit.

If you give us your account information for direct debit when you reserve by phone, we will post your tickets to you. Orders submitted in writing by letter or email will be processed in the order in which they are received. We will send the tickets you have requested once your direct debit payment has been completed: we regret that we cannot accept any other method of payment. Please do not send us any credit card details by email, fax or post!

Ticket prices
All the ticket prices quoted are final prices including fees of 8 %. Tickets will not be taken back once they have been purchased.

Delivery charge
Tickets sent out by post will incur a delivery charge of 2,50 € (standard letter).

Reservation period
We will reserve tickets for you without payment for up to 10 days after we receive your request. Tickets can only be reserved for collection at the box office on the night if they have already been paid for.

If you are visiting the opera together as a group, with your company or society, as a gift for business partners or clients, or as a way of saying thank you to your staff or trainees, we will help you to make it a unique experience.

  • Your group of 20 persons or more will generally receive a 35 % reduction on ticket prices.
  • Payment and minor adjustments to the agreed number of tickets can be made up to three weeks before the performance.

Before and after the performance
A guided tour backstage, a personal introduction to the performance or a private reception in a separate area of the foyer can all turn an evening at the opera or ballet into an event. We will be happy to advise you!

Our catering partners will be happy to provide an individual package for you upon request.

Ticket Return
Tickets sold cannot be returned or exchanged. If, as a gesture of goodwill, a return is nevertheless permitted - against a cancellation voucher - a handling fee of up to €8.00 per ticket will be charged.

Cast changes and other last-minute changes to the performance schedule, in particular interruptions, a late start to the performance or a concert performance, do not generally entitle the holder to return tickets. Exceptions to this rule may be determined by the theatre management in individual cases.

If a different work is performed instead of the one announced when the ticket was purchased, tickets purchased can be returned free of charge at the box office until the performance begins in exchange for a voucher. If a performance is cancelled, the DOR will endeavour to offer a replacement performance. If this is not possible, a voucher will be granted. Such a voucher may also be obtained in exchange for the return of the ticket if a performance has been cancelled, provided that less than half of the pure performance time (excluding intermission) has been shown at the time of cancellation. If a performance has to be abandoned after half, all claims for compensation are excluded. The aforementioned claims may be asserted in writing to DOR within 14 days of the performance date. A claim for refund of the admission price expires if it is not asserted within this period.
