Where to buy opera tickets

opera ticketTo purchase tickets for Bayerische Staatsoper performances online, use the English-language Tickets form at the opera company's Web site. Online ticket sales are available for performances during the next two months; beyond that, you'll need to book ahead by letter, fax, or e-mail, and your order will be processed two months before the performance date.

For more information, see the Bayerische Staatsoper's Advance Booking page, which also has an address, phone numbers, and hours of operation for the box office in Munich.

Tip: If you're buying or collecting tickets in person, note that the theatre has two box offices: a daytime box office in the glass building behind the theatre on Marstallplatz, and an evening box office just to the left of the Nationaltheater's colonnaded facade on Max-Joseph-Platz. (The evening box office opens one hour before the performance.)
