Important information regarding Opera U 

  • Opera U is available to high school, college and university students who register through our online form. All students must log in using their username and password, and use the Opera U promotion code they receive via email to purchase tickets. 
  • Each student must present a valid student ID when retrieving their ticket(s) from the Box Office’s Will Call window on the night of the performance. If a valid student ID is not presented or the name on the ID does not match the name on the account which purchased the tickets, the Box Office has the right to refuse entrance to the performance and refund your money. 
  • Tickets are not transferable to another party. 
  • Opera U tickets are sold at the discretion of the Box Office, which determines the performances, locations and number of tickets offered.
