YOU’VE HAD A FLIGHT OF WINE. HOW ABOUT A FLIGHT OF OPERA?

Admit it: you’re curious about opera. But perhaps you’re a little worried you won’t fit in or understand what’s going on. Trust us, all kinds of people attend LA Opera, and if you can read this paragraph, you can read the subtitles we provide right above the action onstage.

We admit, though, that like wine, opera can take a bit of tasting before you get completely hooked (our true intent). So we’ve carefully curated a flight of opera just for virgin taste buds and paired it with some basics to help get you started.

Newcomer Package

With a newcomer package, you’ll get:
  • A really good deal (like 10% off regular tickets). Packages start at only $43!
  • Pre-show discussion on Newcomer Nights about what you’re going to see and hear so you become an expert
  • “Newbies only” intermission receptions on Newcomer Nights with complimentary wine (of course)

FREE TALKS & RECEPTIONS

EASY PAYMENT PLANS

We get it - opera can be expensive especially when buying multiple tickets in a subscription.  That's where we can help!  You can spread your payments out over a couple months. To set up a payment plan, please order your subscription by phone by calling the Box Office at 213.972.8001 Monday through Friday, from 10:00am - 6:00pm (PST).

FULL REFUND ON CANCELLED SHOW

If any performances in your Spring 2021 Season package are cancelled you can request a full refund for that performance. 

DISCOUNTED EXCHANGES 

Change of plans? Looks like rain? Surprise visit from the in-laws? No problem. You can exchange your tickets into the same seating section of the theater at a different performance of the same opera for only $5 (regular ticket buyers pay $25 per ticket).*

TICKET DONATION

If you can’t make a performance of that opera, don't fret,  you may donate your ticket back to LA Opera (FYI: we are a non-profit organization) for a tax-deductible donation (now it's your accountant's problem).**

*Exchanges may be subject to seating price increase and are based on availability.  Exchanges made less than 48 hours prior to curtain time are subject to a $25 Exchange Fee.

**Ticket donations may be made up until two hours prior to curtain time of that performance; exceptions may be made for sold-out performances.
