We make opera and dance affordable. There are many ways to save!
Young professionals and students gain Access to the Detroit Opera House’s world-class opera and dance.
Access members receive:
- Main-floor seats to select opera and dance productions for over 50% off
- A complimentary specialty drink at an exclusive post-performance reception
- A chance to meet members of the cast!
Access is the perfect opportunity for opera and dance fans, as well as those who want to give it a try for the first time.
How does it work?
Young Professionals ages 18–40 can try two opera or dance performances for only $25 each, a savings of over 50%! After your first two events, tickets are $30 with a subscription or $40 for single tickets.
Students with a valid ID can always attend Access events for $25!
To subscribe, simply choose two or more events and receive the special subscription price of $30 per ticket. You can subscribe at any time.
- Guaranteed Seats
- Many Access events sell out. Subscribing guarantees your tickets before they go on sale to everyone else.
- Save Money
- After you’ve used your two $25 trial tickets, if you like what you see, you can continue to purchase Access single tickets for $40. Access subscription tickets are only $30—another 25% off!
