Standing Room and Rush Tickets

Looking to attend the opera for less? A number of low-price tickets are available for every mainstage opera performance at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts.

Standing Room


Approximately 60 standing room tickets are available for each performance—tickets are just $12!

Standing room tickets go on sale at 11 a.m. on the day of a performance. Tickets can be purchased in person only at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts Box Office, 145 Queen St. W., are subject to availability and are limited to two (2) per person.

Standing room is located in the back rows of Ring 3 and Ring 4 in the Four Seasons Centre. Some Ring 3 locations are SURTITLES™ obstructed. Each of the locations have a hook and a leaning rail, at a height of 3' 11-1/2".

A standing room ticket is the least expensive way to see great opera, but remember to wear comfortable shoes and be prepared to stand for the entire performance (running times are available on the COC website). In consideration of other audience members, please stand as close to the railing as possible and avoid excessive movement during the performance. While there is hook available for each location, the Four Seasons Centre is not responsible for lost or stolen items.

For sightlines, suggested minimum height is 4' 9", portable sitting devices are not permitted and please don’t sit on the railings.

Rush Tickets

All discounts are at the discretion of the Canadian Opera Company.
