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 the donors are graciously underwriting the rest of the cost of your full-priced ticket!
Student subscriptions for the 2022/2023 season will be available soon. Please call Patron Services at 619-533-7000 for information.
Your Subscription, Your Way
Create your own Subscription by mixing and matching your opera performance dates to create a series that suits your schedule.
All Subscribers receive email reminders, one week prior to each opera performance, with everything you’ll need to know including events leading up to the operas, running time and even a weather forecast.
Pre-Opera Lectures in the Theatre
Before each Mainstage opera, enjoy an informative and enlightening 25-minute ‘intro’ to the opera with one of our famous lecturers.
For more information, please call Patron Services at 619-533-7000.
