Easy Ticket Exchange

Seattle Opera subscribers can exchange tickets using our Easy Ticket Exchange program. There are two options to take advantage of ticket exchange:

1. Request an early exchange now. If you already know you cannot make one of the dates of your subscription, you can request to exchange your tickets now. Exchanges are allowed into other dates of the same opera only. Seating for the new date will be assigned in the spring. We accept early exchanges by email. Please send an email with a subject line of Subscription Ticket Exchange to to once you have completed your online subscription order. Include the opera(s) you would like to exchange, the dates you currently have, and the date you want to change to. Please include the maximum total dollar amount you are willing to spend on a seating upgrade, if your current seating area is not available at the same price.


2. Use our online ticket exchange form starting July 21 (or call us) once you receive your tickets and you can easily to change your ticket to another day of the week.

There are no fees for ticket exchanges, however, upgrade charges may apply if the day of week you are changing to is more expensive..

Early Order Subscribers (those who place a subscription order before September 1, 2014) can exchange up to 24 hours prior to the performance start time.
All other subscribers can exchange on the day of your performance up to 4:00 p.m. (or 4:00 p.m. Saturday for Sunday subscribers).

The fine print on exchanges:
Ticket exchanges are subject to availability and are limited to tickets for the same opera. You must have paid for your subscription in full before completing ticket exchanges. The earlier you exchange your tickets, the better our chances are of finding comparable seats for you. Upgrades from a lower-priced seating area or a lower-priced performance must be paid at the time of exchange. Downgrades resulting from an exchange to a lower-priced performance night or seating area will not be refunded.
