Would you like to complete a subscription of the 2018/19 season or join an already-running subscription? Our subscription service advises you via Tel. (040) 35 68 800 or in person during the opening hours (Mon-Sat 10 am-6.30 pm, closed on Sundays and public holidays) about the possibilities.
Subscribers save compared to the single ticket price.
Young people under the age of 30 can book all subscription series of the State Opera at a special youth rate with a 50% discount compared to the normal subscription price!
Try our subscriptions: New subscribers in all series with 8 opera or ballet performances can decide after the first three performances if they want to continue the subscription. If you stick to it, you do not have to do anything, because you will receive a subscription pass for the entire season at the beginning of the season. If you did not like it, just let us know at the latest one week after the third performance that you would like to cancel the subscription. Already paid amounts will then be refunded pro rata. The entry-level option expires as soon as a performance has been exchanged.
Subscribers have the same seat for all performances – except for subscriptions with a free choice of performances.
As of Thursday, May 16, 2019, subscribers will be given the opportunity to secure additional tickets for the performances of the entire opera and ballet season 2019/20. Directly in the ticket service of the State Opera or by phone (040) 35 68 68 you can buy one entry ticket per show per entry in the groups 1-7 with a discount of 10%. If these additional cards are used by children or adolescents up to the age of 18, they only cost € 10.00.
When purchasing tickets for concerts of the Philharmonic State Orchestra, subscribers receive a reduction of 10% (except for "Sonderkonzerte"/special concerts).
The subscription card that entitles you to visit any of the shows you have booked is also transferable to other persons. Discounts that have been acquired in the child or youth rate, can only be used by other people of the same age group.
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.
In the case of postal delivery of additionally purchased tickets, the shipping fee is not applicable for subscribers.
If you are prevented on subscription dates, no problem: you can exchange all fixed subscriptions subscription-shows without limit. Just share your request to exchange our subscription service until 13.00 o'clock of the previous working day (for performances on weekends until Friday 13.00 o'clock). The subscription card does not have to be presented for this purpose. You can then first acquire a swap balance in the amount of the pro-rated subscription price or use this directly when purchasing a trade card for another performance. The swap balance is valid until the end of the game. When redeeming the exchange credit you can usually take a discount of 10% compared to the cash price.
All subscriptions are available from the Hamburg State Opera’s Ticket Office. We would be happy to advise you!
