LA Opera's goal is to make it as easy as possible for students and seniors to know in advance how many seats will be available and when.
The Company will announce IF Rush Tickets will be available for a given performance and HOW MANY seats will be available at the Rush price for a given performance.
The Box Office is notified on the morning of the performance or on the preceding Friday for weekend performances. A sign is posted in the far-left Box Office window with that performance's Rush Ticket quantity two hours prior to curtain. Often an usher will assist by counting off people waiting inline, so that everyone knows in advance whether or not they will be able to purchase at the Rush price.
Rush availability can be learned by calling the LA Opera Box Office at 213.972.8001 and pressing 5.
