Become a House friend

That's what Friends are for...

You become a supporter of our house and share your passion for opera and/or ballet with others. Moreover, as a Friend you enjoy a range of privileges. But above all, your contribution is an extra support to our organisation.

  • at least 1 day's priority for subscription renewal or ticket sales, both online and in the box office
  • preview of the new season by the management of Opera Vlaanderen and Ballet Vlaanderen
  • free swapping of tickets for another performance of the same production (up to one week before the performance)
  • possibility of participating in day trips or opera tours (against payment)
  • invitation to activities organised especially for the Friends, which give you a privileged insight into the workings of our house and bring you closer to our artists
  • news flashes by e-mail
  • discount on certain activities or performances of Opera Vlaanderen and Ballet Vlaanderen (afternoon concerts, PLUS activities, etc.)
  • attendance to 3 (pre-)dress rehearsals (if you are already a subscriber or have bought tickets for at least 3 performances)
  • name indication in the programme booklets and the season brochure, if desired
  • you may bring one extra person to every activity who is not yet a Friend
  • possibility of participating in activities of an exclusive nature: meetings with artists, unique backstage events, etc.
