Subscriber FAQs

Who can become a subscriber?
Anyone can become a subscriber.  Subscription tickets are available at both adult and child prices and are perfect for anyone who wants to see multiple shows at a discounted price.

What’s the difference between a subscriber and a single ticket buyer?
A subscriber is someone who commits up front to purchasing a ticket to at least two productions while a single ticket buyer is someone who purchases a ticket to one production at a time.  While a single ticket buyer can wind up buying tickets to multiple productions, it is the commitment up front to buy a ticket to at least two productions within the same purchase that distinguishes a subscriber.

How much does a subscription cost?
This depends on how many performances you wish to attend, your desired venue and preferred seating reserve. Our subscription packages start as low as $65 for a 2 ballet package for an Adult and $40 for a 2 ballet package for a Child. 3 ballet packages start from $100 for an Adult and $60 for a Child.

What is the age for child tickets?

Child subscription tickets are available up to and including the age of 17.
Please be advised that not all productions may be appropriate for young children.  If you have any questions about the content of our ballets, please call the RNZB at (04) 381 9000.

Do I have to pay upfront for the full year?
No, you can take advantage of the flexible payment option and pay in instalments to split the cost if you pay by credit card.

Do I have to subscribe early to become a subscriber?
A person can choose to subscribe at any time during the season as long as tickets remain available for at least two productions.  However, tickets are subject to availability and the best seats aren’t guaranteed after they go on sale to the general public.  The RNZB recommends subscribing as early as possible to secure yourself the best seats to the performance dates you want.

Can I purchase a subscription across different venues?
Yes, you can purchase a subscription that covers different venues. However, due to our prices differing between venues we ask that you contact the RNZB prior to submitting your subscription form to discuss your requirements (additional fees may apply). Please email with the details of what you want to book.

Can I mix price reserves within a subscription package?
No, you need to buy the same price reserve across performances in a package. You can add additional tickets (page 2 of your subscription form) to your package in a different price reserve if you wish.

What if I can’t make my performance date?
Subscribers are incredibly important to the RNZB and we’re here to help you in any way that we can.  We do ask that you choose your dates wisely and plan accordingly, but we understand that unforeseen circumstances can arise.  If you’re unable to make your performance, contact the RNZB at 0800 4 DANCE (32623) as soon as possible to discuss your options.
