Subscribing is a good deal!

Due to the current situation, new subscriptions for the 2020/21 season are unfortunately not possible.

However, subscribers have the opportunity to purchase tickets for this period preferentially and at a discount.

Do you have any questions about subscriptions? Our subscription service will be happy to advise you on the options available via e-mail at ticket@staatsoper-hamburg.de or by fax at (040) 35 68 610.


Price Advantages

Subscribers save money, compared to the single ticket price.

Reduced Prices with the Youth Rate

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!

Beginners’ Option

Try our subscriptions: New subscribers in all series with 8 opera or ballet performances can decide whether they want to continue the subscription after the first three performances. If you stick to it, you do not have to do anything, because you receive a subscription card 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 beginners' option expires as soon as any performance has been exchanged.

Your Favourite Seat

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

Annual Ticket Sales Opera/Ballet

Subscribers will have the opportunity to secure additional tickets for the performances of the entire 2020/21 opera and ballet season. You can buy one ticket per performance per subscription in seating groups 1-7 at a discount of 10%. If these additional tickets are for children or teenagers up to the age of 18, they only cost € 10.00.

NEW! Concert Tickets at Reduced Prices

During the 2020/21 season, State Opera subscribers also have the option to buy additional and preferential tickets for concerts of the Philharmonic State Orchestra at the Elbphilharmonie. Due to high demand, tickets to concerts at the main auditorium are limited to two tickets per concert programme and a total of six tickets for the season. The subscriber's discount applies to all concerts on sale, with the exception of the New Year's Eve Concert and other special concerts in the main auditorium of the Elbphilharmonie.

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.

Free Shipping of Tickets

In case of postal delivery of additional purchased tickets, the shipping fee is waived 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.
