Ticket Exchange & Donation
Subscribers and donors may exchange their tickets for any other performance of the same production. Tickets are valued for exchange until one business day prior to your performance.
We reserve special inventory throughout the season for subscribers and make every effort to exchange your tickets into comparable seats on the date you wish to attend. If we are having difficulty finding comparable seating, we will contact you to discuss the available options. We will not release your current tickets until a suitable solution has been agreed upon.
If you have a last-minute emergency, please contact us at 215-732-8400. When the office is closed, we check voice mail up to 90 minutes prior to performance time. We will do our best to assist you.
To exchange tickets for FREE, please use one of the following methods:
NEW! By E-mail: Send e-mail to email@example.com
Please use the name of the production as the e-mail subject line. Include your Patron ID# (found on bottom left corner of ticket), original performance date, the seat locations to be exchanged, and the new date you prefer to attend. Please destroy your original tickets upon receipt of email confirmation.

Tax-Deductible Ticket Donation
If you are unable to use your tickets, please consider donating them back to us for a tax credit. A minimum of 24 hours notice is preferable, but you may let us know by leaving a message on our voice mail at 215-732-8400 up to 90 minutes prior to performance time.
You will be asked to write "Donated" across the face of each ticket in ink and either return them by mail, or fax a photocopy to 215-893-7801. Once your tickets have been received, your receipt will be mailed approximately one month after the production closes. Opera Philadelphia thanks you for your tax-deductible donation!
