Thank you for your support! Subscribers are an integral part of the Canadian Opera Company’s success.

As regular attendees, your dedication to the COC is rewarded with advance access to discounted individual tickets, priority seating, subscriber discounts, special exchange and transfer privileges, and tax receipts for returned tickets. Instructions and forms for these and other benefits are found below.

Individual Tickets: Advance Access and Discounts

A night at the opera is even better when you bring your friends. Beginning August 15, 2016, subscribers may purchase additional tickets to this season’s line-up of exciting operas at their subscription price, which can be up to 50% off single ticket prices.

Individual tickets will be available for Friends Members beginning on August 14th.

Individual tickets will be available for Subscribers beginning on August 21st.



Subject to availability, tickets may be exchanged for another performance date of the same opera. Exchange requests must be received by the COC at least one business day prior to the original performance date. Exchanges are free for Premier subscribers. All Select, Flexible and individual ticket exchanges are subject to a per-ticket service charge.

Exchanges will be available beginning on August 21st.

Ticket Transfers

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.

Ticket Transfers will be available beginning on August 21st.

Tax Receipts for Unused Tickets

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. Tax Receipts must be arranged one business day prior to your scheduled 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 Flexible subscription and individual tickets are not eligible.

Tax Receipt requests will be available beginning on August 8th.
