Friends of the COC

Friends of the COC become involved in the company through attending working rehearsals that provide an inside look at the final preparations before opening night, they enjoy each other's company in the Friends Lounge during performances at the
Four Seasons Centre, and learn more about the opera with our Prelude newsletter.

Friends of the COC can also purchase single tickets one week in advance of the general public which gives you all-important access to seats before our performances sell out.
