Introducing COMMUNITY RUSH TICKETS for Creatives and Students!

WALK UP AND SAVE!

Beginning in the 2019-2020 Season, Austin Opera is rolling out a new Rush program for tickets! Community Rush Tickets are day-of-show, and for assigned seats at an incredible discount.

There are two rush ticket programs: one for full time Students and one for Creatives. The process for purchasing tickets is the same: arrive at the Long Center when the box office is open (two hours prior to show and up to 15 minutes prior to curtain), find the RUSH window, and have your qualifying materials ready. The box office attendant will select the best available seat for you, anywhere in the house!
