How Season Tickets Work

Save up to 40% when you buy 2016/17 season tickets including La traviata, The Magic Flute, and more! Season ticket holders choose any 3 or all 4 remaining operas and enjoy the same seats all year. As our most loyal patrons, they also receive exclusive benefits including easy exchanges, behind-the-scenes events, bring-a-friend discounts, and more.

Want to mix and match your performance days (some weekends, some weekdays), times (some evenings, some matinees), and/or seats? Try our Create Your Own package.

Pricing Overview

Season tickets offer big savings off the cost of buying the operas individually. Prices depend on where you sit and which day of the week you attend. When you purchase season tickets, you have the same seat each time you attend the opera.  Wednesday and Friday evenings are the most affordable, followed by Sunday matinees and Saturday evenings. Main floor season tickets start at $67 per opera. Second Tier seats are as low as $38 per opera.

Buy any 3 operas, save 30%. Buy 4, save 40%: We've recently reduced the price on many of the very best seating areas on all levels of McCaw Hall, including Orchestra Center! Check out the revised price and seating charts:

Student and senior discounts are also available for some series (see charts above). Opera goers ages 21–39 are invited to join BRAVO!, our young professionals group, to save up to 50% off single ticket prices.

If you have questions or prefer personal assistance, call us at 206.389.7676 or toll-free at 800.426.1619. Representatives are available from 9 AM to 3 PM Monday through Friday to answer questions and find a seat, series, and price that works for you.
