Tickets & Subscriptions
2014-2015 Mainstage Season
Subscriptions are currently available for the 2014-2015 mainstage season.
To start our main stage season, Calgary Opera joins many other groups in commemorating the centenary of the start of WWI with a Pulitzer Prize winning opera that was inspired by true events.Silent Night by Kevin Puts and Mark Campbell premiered in Minnesota in 2011 to critical acclaim, sold-out performances and standing ovations for the entirety of its run. In late January we present one of Mozart’s most popular operas – The Marriage of Figaro. Considered one of the great operatic masterpieces, this comic opera was last performed at Calgary Opera in 2001 to capacity crowds. And you won’t want to miss our final mainstage production of the season in April – the eternal audience favourite – Bizet’s Carmen– a sensational story of seduction, jealousy and deceit.
Subscribe now to ensure the best seats at the best prices for a season that features the intense passions and emotions of fascinating characters caught in extreme situations.

What if I lose my tickets? Can they be replaced?
Subscription tickets can be replaced if lost. To replace lost subscription tickets phone 403-262-7286.
Can I exchange my tickets for another performance night?
Ticket exchanges for another night of the same performance can be made for subscription tickets free of charge. Single event ticket holders can exchange their tickets for a fee of $3 per ticket up to 24 hours prior to the performance. There is a special "last minute" exchange fee $5 to exchange tickets less than 24 hours prior to the performance. To exchange performance nights bring your tickets in hand to the Calgary Opera Box Office (Arrata Opera Centre, 1315 - 7 Street SW) at least 24 hours prior to the performance night of your tickets or the night you wish to exchange to, whichever comes first.
What if I can’t make any performance date of the opera?
Opera tickets make great gifts! You can always give your tickets to a family member or friend. You may also donate your ticket back to the Opera. You will receive a tax-deductible receipt for tickets that are returned 24 hours before the performance date.
What if I miss my performance? Can I exchange those tickets for another night?
We cannot exchange tickets after the performance has passed. Exchanges must be made in advance and require that we are able to sell the tickets that you cannot use. If you cannot make a performance (and you are a subscriber) it is imperative that you exchange your tickets at least 24 hours prior to the performance date on your ticket.
Can I get a refund if I miss a performance?
We´re sorry, but we do not refund performance tickets.
