Which discount passes are accepted by Dutch National Opera & Ballet?

Dutch National Opera & Ballet offers discounts on the admission price upon presentation of a Cultural Youth Pass (CJP), Stadspas Amsterdam. Students are offered last-minute tickets at €15.


Youth < 16
Young visitors who can show that they are sixteen or under are eligible for the youth discount, which is the same as the CJP discount (even if they do not have a CJP pass).


Upon presentation of the CJP pass, visitors receive a discount of €4 to €10 on the regular admission price for all performances, depending on the price category.


Holders of a Stadspas from the districts of Amsterdam, Diemen, Landsmeer and Oostzaan receive a discount on performances by Dutch National Opera and Dutch National Ballet. The Stadspas is personal, and you will be requested to present your Stadspas on entering the theatre. The discount is only valid if you can present your Stadspas. If you cannot do so, you will be requested to pay the difference in price at the box office.
