Subscribe and Save

Become a subscriber and receive a whole host of benefits. 

A subscriber, or season ticket holder, is a patron who buys tickets in advance for at least two RNZB productions in a given year.  Subscribers are incredibly valuable supporters of the RNZB and play a central role in helping us achieve our goals– keeping the RNZB onstage and on the road.  If you love ballet and want to see everything the RNZB has to offer, then becoming a subscriber is the perfect choice for you.
