Tickets for the Savonlinna Opera Festival can be paid for with Smartum and Edenred vouchers. These vouchers are valid means of payment at the Savonlinna Opera Festival Ticket Office. The vouchers accepted by individual Lippupiste outlets are given on the voucher issuer’s website. Lippu-piste updates the information about the vouchers accepted at individual outlets at www.lippu.fi. Vouchers can be used to buy tickets for personal use only. In other words, they cannot be used to buy gift vouchers, for example.

Flexi tickets
For summer 2019 we are again selling flexi tickets to ensure that you can still visit the Savonlinna Opera Festival even if your plans change. This option is valid until May 31, 2019.

A flexi ticket entitles you to change your ticket for one of the same price for any performance during the same opera season, subject to availability, but only if it is a flexi ticket bought at an additional charge of €10 per ticket. A flexi ticket also allows you to upgrade your ticket for a more expensive one by paying the balance. There will be a service charge for changing your ticket, and service char-ges already paid will not be reimbursed.

Flexi tickets can be changed at the full-service outlet where they were originally bought. Tickets bought online or at an R-kiosk can be changed via the Savonlinna Opera Festival Office, tel. 015 476 750.

Potluck tickets
Each ticket costs €70 and entitles the holder to the best available seat (box not included). Potluck tickets can be purchased up to the day before the performance but will not be issued until 15.00 on the day of the performance, at the Festival Ticket Office (Olavinkatu 27, Savonlinna). They will be allocated in order of purchase, beginning with the best available seats selected by the Opera Festi-val. The Opera Festival cannot guarantee that the buyer of, say, two Potluck tickets will get adjacent seats. The number of Potluck tickets is limited. No reductions are granted on Potluck tickets. Information about performances will be announced at www.operafestival.fi on October 1, 2018.

Tickets cannot be refunded or changed, apart from flexi tickets. Force majeure conditions apply to all performances. Tickets will then be refunded on presentation. The Savonlinna Opera Festival takes no responsibility for lost tickets.
