Since 2005, we are proud to offer 1,000 free tickets to performances across our season each year, enabling young people aged 7-18 to get their first taste of opera with us.

Being given the chance to actually see an opera live, and enjoying it so much, has given [my daughter] something to really think about.
Free Tickets for Younger Audiences recipient


Young people aged 7-18 are eligible to book free tickets. Children aged 7-15 years old must be accompanied by an adult (over 18 years) whose ticket is also free. A free accompanying adult ticket is only available where there is a young person aged under 16 years applying for tickets. Qualifying individuals may book for up to four tickets: one adult and up to three under 18s in the pink price zone only. Customers are welcome to purchase any additional tickets.


Free tickets for under 18s are still available for our upcoming performances of L’arlesiana and the Double Bill of Il segreto di Susanna and Iolanta.
