30 & Younger Program

Experience live opera at a fraction of the cost of regular tickets!

30 and Younger is a free membership program for anyone aged 30 or under. Members may buy up to two tickets for 50% off the regular adult ticket price on selected performances and seating sections.

How it Works

Sign up for your free 30 & Younger Membership using the form at the bottom of this page.

Watch for an email about a month before each opera production with the information, promo code, and expiry date for buying your discount tickets.

You may order your tickets online, in person, or over the phone up to one week before the performance. To pick up your tickets, bring photo ID; you may pick them up in advance or at the theatre when you come for the performance.

You will also receive Pacific Opera’s Enews with information about the operas and news about all kinds of special events, many of them free.
