Generally single tickets for each opera go on sale after the final performance of the previous opera. Tickets for the first opera of each season are available in early September. For exact single ticket sale dates for each opera of the season, please see our main box office page.
Season subscriptions go on sale before single tickets and are the most economical way to ensure you have a ticket for each opera. Subscribers also have exchange privileges and may purchase subscriptions and additional single tickets before they go on sale to the general public. Find out more about subscriber benefits.
Single tickets can be purchased in person at the following locations:
Single tickets can be purchased over the phone by calling
Single tickets also may be purchased online through the Royal and McPherson Theatres Society web site.
Orders placed through the RMTS box office are subject to a handling fee of $3 per order for online orders, and $1.50 per ticket for telephone orders.
Season Subscriptions and Discount Packages are available only through the Pacific Opera box office. You may order your subscription as follows:
Ticket exchanges are a service offered only to subscribers; therefore single tickets cannot be exchanged.
Subscription tickets may be exchanged from one performance to another within the same production up to 24 hours before your scheduled performance. Exchanges are subject to availability and cannot be reserved by phone. Unfortunately we are unable to do exchanges from one production to another.
All tickets are non-refundable. However Subscription tickets may be returned as a tax-deductible donation. Returned subscription tickets must be received in the POV office at least 24 hours before the performance. A charitable tax receipt in the amount of the donated ticket will be issued by mail shortly after the performance. Single tickets cannot be returned for a tax receipt.
Tickets can be reprinted at the Royal Theatre box office when you arrive for the performance. Please arrive at the box office at least 30 minutes prior to performance start time and bring some ID. A replacement ticket will be issued at that time.
