Your barcoded ticket is your key to a certain opera performance or event. The ticket barcode will only be scanned and accepted once. Consequently, your barcoded ticket cannot be copied or used more than once.

If you are unable to attend a performance or event, you have the right to transfer your ticket to another person. Please note that some price categories are subject to certain conditions which require you to present an ID, student card or stage pass at the main entrance door. However, this will be clearly indicated on your ticket and further information can be found on the Opera website.

Tickets cannot be transferred or resold for commercial purposes. This includes:

  • Using tickets at competition prize-givings or similar events unless permission is obtained in advance from the organiser.
  • Transferring tickets in conjunction with the sale of various goods and services such as travels, restaurant visits, hotel accommodation, etc., unless permission is obtained in advance from the organiser.
  • Selling or transferring tickets for commercial purposes regardless of price.

By using and selling tickets for commercial purposes, the tickets become null and void. The Göteborg Opera shall be entitled to compensation for any and all costs associated with the cancellation of tickets as a result of unauthorised ticketing.

Exchange and cancellation


You can change your ticket to a different performance of the same production up until the day before the performance, subject to availability.  When you change tickets, The Göteborg Opera charges an exchange fee of SEK 30 per ticket. You pay this fee when you change the ticket. 


With the Göteborg Opera’s cancellation protection, you can cancel your ticket up to four weeks prior to the performance date. You can buy cancellation protection along your ticket. The cancellation protection only applies for the performance you purchased it for. The price of the ticket will be refunded. In the event of illness or criminal damage, you can cancel up until the day before the performance, in which case you’ll receive a gift voucher equivalent to the price of the ticket. Cancellation due to illness or criminal damage must be verified with a medical certificate or a police report.

For terms and conditions applicable to Rebooking Protection, please visit this page.

Cancellation of performance

In the event that a production or event cannot be performed, it will be cancelled. We will then contact you either by e-mail or mobile. You will be given the option of either receiving a refund for the cost of your ticket or exchanging your ticket for another performance date. The repurchase/exchange must be made within 3 weeks from the cancelled performance or event. Administrative fees are non-refundable.

A change of repertoire, location/venue or a partially performed production or event does not constitute a cancelled performance and is usually non-refundable.

Force Majeure

The Göteborg Opera’s obligation under the terms and conditions, including the responsibility to carry out the event and including the ticket buyer´s right to a refund, is cancelled if the event is affected by a force majeure situation before or during the event. Force majeure means a circumstance that is beyond the control of the Göteborg Opera, including but not limited to war, riot, terrorism, volcanic eruption, fire, flooding, strike, weather, national security orders, or instructions from national or local authorities.
