  • Exchanges

    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 Pick, Flexible and individual ticket exchanges are subject to a per-ticket service charge.

    Subscription tickets for the 2018/2019 season may be exchanged beginning on Monday, August 20th, 2018. 

    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 for the 2018/2019 season may be submitted beginning on Monday, August 20th, 2018. 

    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.

    Subscription tickets for the 2018/2019 season may be returned for a tax receipt beginning on Monday, August 20th, 2018.
