Subscribing is a good deal!

Hamburg State Opera subscribers enjoy numerous advantages.

Price Advantages

Subscribers save up to 40% compared to the price of single tickets; young subscribers under the age of 30 even save 75%!

Your Favourite Seat

Subscribers have the same seat for all performances – except for subscriptions with a free choice of performances. In the series with automatic renewal we guarantee your favourite seat for the duration of your entire subscription.

Purchase Option 1: Annual ticket sales

Subscribers have a preferential purchase option to secure tickets for additional performances during the 2017/18 season. From Thursday, May 11, 2017 – i.e. before the beginning of general advance sales – you can buy one ticket per subscription seat for performances from September to January at reduced prices and from Thursday, August 31, 2017 on for all other performances, either in person at the State Opera’s ticket office or by calling +49 (40) 35 68 68.

Purchase Option 2: Short-term ticket sales

In the same manner as during the annual ticket sales, your exclusive purchase option is also valid 29 days before a performance if we release an additional, limited contingent of tickets for sale.

Additional Tickets at Reduced Prices

Subscribers save when purchasing additional tickets: per subscription seat and performance, you are entitled to buy one additional seat with a 10% rebate compared to the general price. NEW! If additional tickets are used by young adults or children, the price is € 10,-.

Concert Tickets at Reduced Prices

When purchasing tickets for concerts of the Philharmonic State Orchestra at the Laeiszhalle, subscribers receive a reduction of 10% (except for "Sonderkonzerte"/special concerts).  

Transferable Tickets

The ticket entitling you to attend the subscription performance can be transferred to other persons (except for youth subscriptions).
