Before entering the Theatre, every audience member must submit a health declaration. The online declaration cannot be submitted earlier than 48 hours before the curtain-up:
If you have bought tickets online, either print them at home or show them on the screen of your mobile device when entering the opera house. If you have a concessionary ticket, don’t forget to bring a document that entitles you to a reduced ticket price with you.
Are ticket returns accepted?
Single tickets may be returned no later than 7 days before the performance, while the deadline for returning group tickets is 21 days. In both cases you will need to present the receipt. A fee is collected each time you return a ticket – see our Terms and Conditions of Sale and Booking of Tickets for more information.
Note: If you bought your tickets online you may retirn them only if the show has been cancelled or the repertoire changed.
Can I get any rush tickets?
General rush tickets go on sale on the day of a performance, an hour before curtain up, subject to availability of seats in the auditorium.
Please swith to ‘analogue mode’ for the duration of the performance: mobiles and cameras can wait until the interval.
Using mobile phone during performances distracts the artists and disturbs the other members of the audience; recording is a violation of the performers’ copyright. Lose yourself in dance and music.
Unlike it is the case of many dance clubs in Warsaw, you enter the National Opera without any door selection.
Most of the opera’s guests dress smartly for a performance. However, what matters most is what you experience at the Teatr Wielki, not how you look like.
Snacks and beverages
Our buffets serve snacks and beverages in the intervals – during performances the audience must feast on music only.
Four opera buffets are at your disposal before the curtain-up and in the intervals, serving coffee, wine and snacks. You will also fins an Empik cafe at the opera house, open every day from 2 pm.
The opera house is easily accessible by the metro, buses, and trams. Parking a car nearby might in turn be sometimes a challenge.
