Show All Benefits


The not-so-fine print (your benefits explained). There are lots of these, so better go refresh that coffee first. We'll wait.

Join fellow Newcomers (who also want to learn what a sitzprobe is) at an informative yet fun pre-performance chat AND an exclusive intermission reception with complimentary wine.

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.

Should anything change and you don’t feel comfortable joining us, we’ll be happy to exchange or refund your tickets. $5 charge will apply.

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).**

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

Newcomer packages are available only to first time subscribers. To subscribe to the Newcomer Package, please contact the Box Office.
