Redeem a Gift Certificate

You may redeem your gift certificate for tickets anytime during the season. However, we encourage you to redeem your gift certificate as soon as possible, as many performances sell out. Please include a first choice and an alternate date in case your first choice is not available.

If we receive your certificate 10 days or more before the desired performance, your tickets will be mailed to you. Tickets will be held at Will Call if the request is received later than 10 days before the performance.

Please have your gift certificate number available, along with your Houston Grand Opera account number.

What costs are associated with exchanges?

For subscribers, there is no fee to exchange a ticket. However, you will pay the difference in ticket price when exchanging from a lower-priced seat or performance to a higher-priced seat or performance.

Single tickets may be exchanged with a $10 per ticket fee. Additionally, you will pay the difference in ticket price when exchanging from a lower-priced seat or performance to a higher-priced seat or performance.

When will my exchanged tickets be mailed to me?

Exchanged tickets are mailed within 24 hours of processing, unless your new performance is within seven business days of the exchange. In that case, tickets will be held at the Will Call window at the Box Office. They can be picked up beginning 1 hour and 30 minutes before the performance.

What if I can't find a convenient exchange date?

In the event that your schedule will not permit you to attend a performance, you may choose to donate your ticket back to Houston Grand Opera. We will send you a receipt for the face value of your ticket for tax purposes. Please note, ticket donations are not accepted after the ticketed performance has begun.


$15 NEXUS Tickets

The NEXUS initiative provides low-cost tickets for new audiences at all HGO performances as well as student matinees.

We have a passion for the art we produce, and believe we have a responsibility to share it and make it accessible. We reject the myth that the arts are the exclusive province of an elite few. A limited number of $15 NEXUS tickets are available for each main stage performance during the 2018–19 Season for first-time opera goers and school groups.

Through the NEXUS initiative, Houston Grand Opera offers free performances every year at Miller Outdoor Theatre.
