Tickets to all performances are available exclusively through the Rochester Opera House Box Office or online at www.rochesteroperahouse.com, which is hosted through a certified ticketing platform called SaBO. Ticket scalpers purchase tickets the same way that you can purchase them yourself, and then they generally charge exorbitant mark ups. Buying from ticket brokers or the secondary market does not necessarily give you a better deal, even when they’re following federal regulations.
In addition to paying much more than necessary, if there is a problem with your order (such as counterfeit tickets or lack of ticket arrival), and you purchased tickets from any site other than www.rochesteroperahouse.com, the Rochester Opera House cannot help you. Furthermore, in the event of show time changes, cancellations, etc., the Rochester Opera House will not be able to notify you of any important show-related items that may occur. If you have questions about purchasing tickets please call the Rochester Opera House Box Office at 603-335-1992.
