For summer 2020 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, 2020.

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 charges 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. +358 15 476 750.

Each ticket costs €70 and entitles the holder to the best available seat (box not included). Pot luck tickets are available only in online store. Tickets will be be delivered by email on the day of the performance.

They will be allocated in order of purchase, beginning with the best available seats selected by the Opera Festival. The Opera Festival cannot guarantee that the buyer of, say, two Pot luck tickets will get adjacent seats. The number of Pot luck tickets is limited. No reductions are granted on Pot luck tickets.
Pot luck tickets for summer 2020 performances of La traviata and Werther are available here.

We apply a flexible pricing policy. The price of the ticket depends on the location of the seat, the production, and the demand for tickets. The price of a particular seat may alter during the sales season.

The easiest way to find prices, a map of the auditorium and vacant seats is to check the page for the performance of your choice at

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
