Discounts

To make our shows accessible to everyone, we offer discounts for specific groups. Check here if you are eligible.

CJP
On presentation of your CJP pass, you will receive a discount of €4 to €10 on the regular admission price for all performances, depending on the price category.

CKV Culture Card
Most secondary school students in the Netherlands receive a CKV Culture Card. With this card you can go to the opera for a low price, from the third grade for €15. And to ballet, from the second rank for €10.
This discount is only given at the box office or by phone, and the pass is strictly checked at the door.
Please note: you will not get a refund if you buy online with a CJP discount, but you appear to have a CKV Culture Card.

Youth up to and including 16 years of age
Young people who can prove that they are under 17 are eligible for the youth discount, which is equal to the CJP discount (even without a CJP card).
