Terms for early bookings

General terms and conditions
You are required to pay a deposit on bookings for performances that are less than 8 months hence. This deposit must be paid within 4 weeks of the booking date. The final invoice will be sent to you 4 months before the performance date. This must be settled within 4 weeks. If the desired performance is within the next 5 months then you will receive an invoice for full payment, which must be settled within 4 weeks.

Please note that reserved tickets will be automatically released for sale after expiry of the deposit deadline if you have not contacted us and have not made payment.

Ticket returns 
There is no charge on reductions or cancellations of group bookings prior to deposit payment. Please inform us in writing of any such changes.
A reduction in the number of reserved tickets made between the deposit payment and final payment date shall entail a cancellation fee of two euros per ticket. This fee will be deducted from the deposit. The Semperoper Dresden may take back purchased tickets on consignment without any legal obligation. In particular, the Semperoper Dresden is not obliged to offer such tickers for prioritized sale. Any income from sold tickets will be paid after the event. The consignment fee amounts to 10 percent of the ticket price, at least six euros per ticket. Any unsold tickets will be returned to you by mail.
