Purchasing tickets

Do I need to print my ticket?

You can print your ticket or show it on your mobile. 

What should I do if I am unable to find my ticket?

As long as we have registered who has purchased the ticket (name, e-mail and/or telephone number), we will be able to issue you with a new ticket. Call +47 21 42 21 21, contact the box office or log in if you have created a profile. 

Can I pay using a foreign credit card?

You can pay for tickets on operaen.no using your Visa or MasterCard. However, not all foreign cards will be approved on operaen.no – due to security reasons the card’s country of issue and the country of the computer’s IP address must be the same. This is to prevent the fraudulent use of foreign cards, and we therefore thank you for your understanding.

Inside the Opera House

Is there a staffed cloakroom?

No, the cloakroom is unstaffed and all items are left here at your own risk. However, a curtain is pulled down during the performance, and partially opened during the interval(s).

May I leave my bag in the cloakroom?

A number of small lockers / lockable boxes are available for your valuables. We have no space for suitcases, so for large items please use the baggage storage facilities at Oslo Central Station.

Are there any restaurants at the Oslo Opera House?

The Oslo Opera House features two restaurants: the Argent restaurant (located next to the Second Stage to the left of the main entrance) and the Sanguine Brasserie, which serve both lunch and dinner. In the summer outdoor seating is available, with views of the fjord.
Bars are also located outside the Argent restaurant and on the first and second balconies. The balcony bars are only open during intervals.

Interval refreshments can also be ordered at the bars prior to the performance.

Where do I collect the food and drink I have ordered for the interval?

Food and drink is placed on the bar counter in the foyer, directly next to the Sanguine Brasserie, or in the bar on the 1st balcony if you have ordered there. Orders are sorted alphabetically by surname.
