Beginning in 2012/2013, the COC is introducing digital ticketing, which
means that all admissions will be scanned at the front entrance of the
Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts. This system allows patrons
to complete exchanges and transfers online, with tickets being delivered
by e-mail in a print-at-home format.
Subject to availability, tickets may be exchanged for another
performance date of the same opera. Exchange requests must be received
by the COC before 5 p.m. at least one business day prior to the original
performance date. Premier subscribers are permitted one free exchange
per production; subsequent Premier and all Select, Multi-Pack and
individual ticket exchanges are subject to a per-ticket service charge.
To exchange tickets, complete the exchange request form or call 416-363-8231 during regular business hours.
If you are unable to attend a performance and wish to transfer your
seats to a friend, the COC now offers no-cost online ticket transfers,
available up to two hours before a performance. Simply complete the
online form, including your account details and the name and e-mail
address of the individual you wish to transfer your tickets to, and we
will complete your request and email them digital print-at-home tickets.
Once confirmed, please destroy your original tickets as they will be
void. Remember, the COC must receive your transfer request at least two
hours prior to the performance time, and transferred tickets cannot be
subsequently returned for a tax receipt.
To transfer tickets, complete the transfer request form or call 416-363-8231 during regular business hours.
If you are unable to exchange or transfer your subscription tickets,
as a charitable organization, the COC can issue the purchaser a tax
receipt for the face value of the tickets. We require a minimum of 24
hours notice prior to the performance – past performance tickets cannot
be returned for a tax receipt – and there are no refunds. Ticket returns
cannot be used towards member programs, and Multi-Pack and individual
tickets are not eligible.
To return your subscription tickets for a tax receipt, complete the
tax receipt request form or call 416-363-8231 during regular business hours.
