1. Celebrate the return to in-person performances. The shared magic and excitement of live performance feels more meaningful than ever as the curtain rises again. We are thrilled to finally welcome you back to the Citizens Bank Opera House.

2. Be in the audience for a record-breaking eight world premieres. This season features brand-new works from Stephen Galloway, William Forsythe, Jorma Elo, and five stellar ChoreograpHERs innovating across creative fields.

3. Get your Nutcracker tickets early. For the first time ever, you can include The Nutcracker in your full season subscription. Watch the dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy and the iconic snow scene all from your favorite seats.

4. Watch ballet your way. Virtual subscriptions are BACK for another season. Stream four programs from October through June for just $140 and enjoy ballet on your own schedule. Can’t decide between in-person and virtual? Try both! Add a virtual subscription to your in-person order for just $88.

5. Fill your social calendar. Save your seats for multiple ballets at once and save up to $100 over individual tickets. You never have to worry about performances selling out, and you get first dibs on the best seats in the house.

6. Support the art you love. Our subscribers keep us dancing and help to bring innovative art to audiences everywhere. We couldn’t do it without you, and an early commitment to the season helps us start off on strong footing.

7. Enjoy maximum flexibility. We get it, things happen. Plans change. Weather issues pop up. The babysitter cancels at the last minute. That’s why subscribers enjoy free and easy exchanges, plus missed-performance insurance. We’ve got your “what ifs” covered so you can focus on enjoying your trip to the ballet.  

8. Go behind the scenes. Ever wonder what it takes to bring your favorite ballet to life? Super Subscribers who donate $100 or more get two behind-the-scenes rehearsal viewing opportunities and a special virtual experience during the season.

9. Enjoy a great view of the stage when you subscribe early. We’re doing things a little differently this season. Seating will be done manually by our subscriber services team on a first-come, first-served basis. Save your seats early to get in line for priority seating.  

If you’re a renewing subscriber, we will automatically assign you the same seats you had during our last season at the Citizens Bank Opera House. Want to change things up? Leave us a note in the “seating requests” field during online checkout.

10. Your investment is guaranteed. Our priority continues to be the health and well-being of our dancers, staff, and audiences. We are actively working with colleagues at the Citizens Bank Opera House and are following local, state, and federal health guidelines. If we need to cancel a performance, the value of your ticket is safe. You will have the option of a credit, refund, or the ability to donate the value of your tickets for a tax-deductible donation.
