Your opera ticket is your train ticket
A purchased ticket entitles the holder to use local transport on the day of the performance, from 5 hours before curtain up until the public transport system closes down for the night. If you wish to travel first class you will have to up-grade.
Subscription ticket holders' passes also entitle them to use free public transport to travel to and from performances. This does unfortunately NOT apply if you have purchased your ticket through Print@Home-Tickets. We hope this will be possible in the future, when the RMV have come up with a way to make this fraud free.
FREE "Child Minding" at Oper Frankfurt
During performances which take place on afternoons we offer free child minding (click on this link to find dates when this service is available). Please contact Janine Köster, telephone number +49 (0)69 212 37 348, to make arrangements.
The offer applies only to children between the ages of three and eight: the children are looked after by two teachers and will also be given something to eat - at no cost. When you hand your child/children over to the carers you must let them know exactly where you are sitting so that you can be found quickly if the need arises.
Programmes on sale at the Advance Box Office
You can buy your programme for the opera when purchasing your ticket at the Städtischen Bühnen's advance box office on Willy Brandt Platz (programmes for new productions are not available until one day before the opening night). Programmes cost €5. Exceptions to the rule are the less expensive programmes for our productions in the Blockenheimer Depot and the programme for Die Zauberflöte, which is a real book. Our regular free and informative opera magazine is also available at the advance box office.
Introductory talks before the performance
Oper Frankfurt's dramaturges offer free introductory talks (in GERMAN about the synopsis, context and production) which last about 15 minutes and begin half an hour before performances begin. These take place in the opera house's Holzfoyer (on the first floor) or in the foyer of the Bockenheimer Depot.
