Auto-Renewal Service

Thank you for being being a loyal subscriber and participating in the auto-renewal service. You will be the first to know about our new season!

As a 5-opera subscriber, you already get to keep your seats from season to season, save 25% off of individual ticket prices, and enjoy flexible exchanges. By participating in our Auto-Renewal Service, you’ll also be the first to know about each new season, enjoy an easy renewal process (all conducted online, no paper mailings), and receive complimentary concession vouchers to enjoy during the next season.


How It Works

Each year, you will receive an email inviting you to confirm your order details before the upcoming season is announced. Once you’ve confirmed your order, you’re eligible to receive an exclusive sneak preview of the upcoming season before anyone else, along with all of the other benefits of being an Auto-Renewal Subscriber. 

For your 2018-19 subscription order, make sure to confirm your order by Feb. 9 to lock in your Auto-Renewal benefits! Use the secure link below to log into your account, verify your contact and order information, and enter a valid credit card number into our encrypted system. You will receive an email receipt when your credit card is charged. 


Your exclusive sneak preview will be sent via email 4-7 days before the general public season announcement. You will have the opportunity to make changes to your order or opt out of this service after you receive your sneak preview by calling Patron Services. If you choose to opt out of the Auto-Renewal Service, an invoice will be mailed to you — your season subscription will not be cancelled.
