How do I buy a ticket?

Via this website

The fastest and easiest way to order the best seats is through You choose your seats yourself on the seating plan you are shown. Moreover, the 360° view allows you to see the view of the stage from the selected seat. You can then download your tickets yourself on your smartphone as a mobile ticket, print them as a pdf or have them sent to you by post. Online payment is possible with Mastercard, Visa, American Express, Bancontact (linked to home banking), the Podiumcadeaukaart, iDeal and Sodexo's sports and culture vouchers.

Opera Ballet Vlaanderen aims to operate cashless. Paying by card is faster and safer. That is why in all bars and box offices you can only pay by credit card or Bancontact.

Bank card

All tickets must be paid in advance. Accepted means of payment: credit card (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro), Bancontact, stage gift card, OBV gift voucher, sports and culture vouchers (Sodexo, Edenred, Monizze), bank transfer.

Waiting list

When a performance sells out, you can sign up on a waiting list. This allows us to contact you when seats become available. Of course, you can always take your chances on tickets by coming to the box office one hour before the start of the performance.

Reprinting tickets

If you have lost your ticket(s), we can make a reprint for 2 euros per ticket. If you choose e-tickets, you can print them at home or show them digitally on your smartware. Make sure you have a clearly readable barcode and maximum screen brightness.

Gift voucher

You always score with an Opera Ballet Vlaanderen gift voucher. You decide the amount yourself and the lucky one will have two years to use some or all of it (any residual value will always be converted into a new gift voucher). Order the voucher via or drop by the box office for a nice package. Gift vouchers can also be redeemed online, if the amount to be spent is at least equal to the value of the voucher.
