How can I get cheaper tickets?

At Victorian Opera, we put great emphasis on making our tickets affordable to as much of our community as possible. This means we start with an affordable full-price ticket and work from there to make sure there is a wide range of prices to suit every budget.

  • Tickets for all performances start at $39 and the most expensive ticket in Season 2024 is $180.
  • There is a dedicated 30 Years and Under ticket price on all performances of $30.
  • Season 2024 subscriptions offer a discount on all performances. Buy two or more shows in a season and save 20%.
  • Concession prices include Pension and Health Care Card holders, Full-time Students, and MEAA Members.
  • Other Discount prices available: Senior card holders, 30 Years and Under, Arts Access Victorian and Child (12 years and under for select performances).
  • Companion Card ticketing is available for all performances.

We occasionally offer special discounts, but this never guaranteed. If you want your choice of performance dates and seats, it is best to buy early to avoid disappointment.
