Buying tickets is easy as each event has its own booking information detailed on each event listing. For many shows, you will find tickets available on the door or in advance from the act's own tickets sales outlet. Seating is usually unreserved. Look out for discounts for children or for concessions (you may need to show proof of status).

Tickets sold by Opera House
