Subscriber FAQs

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 $75 for a 2-ballet package for an Adult and $35 for a 2-ballet package for a Child. 3-ballet packages start from $120 for an Adult and $55 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 two instalments. Pay $100 now and the balance on 1 Feburary 2022.

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. Please choose the Multi City Package option online or phone us to book on 0800 4 DANCE (32623).

Can I mix price reserves within a subscription package?
Yes, you are able to do mix price reserves online but not through the subscription form. If you are using the form, 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 Ticketing Team at 0800 4 DANCE (32623) as soon as possible to discuss your options.

I have a ballet club group booking but somebody in my group can’t make it anymore. What can I do?
If a ballet club member wants to change their ticket to a different night, they will need to pay the difference between the ballet club price and the normal subscription price, unless the whole club transfers to another night as a group.

What’s the phone number for my subscription centre?
The RNZB Ticketing Team are here to help you with your booking, rather than calling individual ticketing agents. Please phone us on 0800 4 DANCE (32623) and we can assist you, or alternatively you’re able to book your subscription online.
