Discounted Tickets for College Students!

Thanks to a group of San Diego Opera donors who want to share their passion for opera with local college students, you have a terrific opportunity to attend a top-quality opera production for a reduced price - this is made available because donors are graciously underwriting the rest of the cost of your full-priced ticket!
