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.

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.
