Terms of sale for groups of more than 20 persons
Dear business partner,
we have revised the sales conditions for group bookings for the current season:
The following terms for performances at the Semperoper Dresden apply to groups of more than 20 persons (these terms and conditions do not apply to third-party events and guest performances):
Terms for early bookings
You are required to pay a deposit on bookings for performances that are less than 8 months hence. This deposit must be paid within 8 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.
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.*
You will be sent an invoice by post or by email. The required deposit of 10 euros per ticket is not a surcharge; your ticket price will be reduced accordingly. The final amount due corresponds to the sum remaining after deduction of any advance payment. An extension option past the invoice due date is generally not possible. 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.
*These terms and conditions do not apply to third-party events and guest performances.
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.
Special terms apply to the following performances
- Opera and ballet premieres at the Semperoper Dresden
- Performances of »Don Carlo«
- Symphony concerts of the Staatskapelle Dresden
- New Year’s Eve concert of the Staatskapelle Dresden, 29 and 30 December 2018
When booking tickets to any of these events, you will receive an invoice for full payment to be made no later than 8 weeks after the date of booking.

A surcharge of 10 percent per ticket is applied to reservations of more than 200 tickets. If tickets are subsequently returned after receipt of invoice, this does not affect the surcharge on remaining tickets.
Further conditions are identical to group reservations for more than 20 persons.
