St. Petersburg Opera Company Season 14 (2019-2020) Subscription Ticket Policy

In processing subscriptions, every effort is made to accommodate patrons’ seating requests, however, this is not always possible and we cannot always guarantee the exact seat(s) and/or performance dates requested.

Subscription ticket requests are processed in order received.

Subscription sales are available by mailing the order form included in our printed Season Brochure or by calling the SPO Box Office at 727-823-2040. You may also download and print a subscription order form from this website and then mail or deliver to

St. Petersburg Opera Company, 2145 1st Ave S, St. Petersburg, FL 33712.


Before Palladium Theater reserved seating tickets are released to the general public for individual sale, priorities in filling subscription orders are as follows:

  1. Returning subscribers wishing to KEEP their same seat(s) AND performance days for Palladium operas from the previous season are given FIRST priority.

This process is TIME-SENSITIVE and must be completed by July 12, 2019.

  1. Returning subscribers wishing to CHANGE their seat(s) AND/OR performance days for Palladium operas are processed next.

This process must be completed by August 2, 2019.

Once you have been placed in seats for this season, you will be reprioritized into Group 1 for the following season (#15) if you wish to keep your new seats and opera performance days.

  1. NEW subscribers are processed after the first two groups have been ticketed. Once you have been placed in seats for this season, you will be reprioritized into Groups 1 or 2 for the following season (#15), depending on your requests.

INDIVIDUAL TICKET SALES will be open to the general public by August 14, 2019.

Please note that performances of MAINSTAGE OPERAS at the Palladium Theater are generally scheduled for Friday evenings, Sunday afternoons, and Tuesday evenings. In addition to this schedule, La Fille du Régiment in late Spring will have two additional performances. After you are booked in your regular subscription seats, you may exchange performance dates for either of the two additional performances, however we cannot guarantee availability of the same seats.

This season, St Petersburg Opera Company will present a special “POPS SPECTACULAR” concert series on July 3, 4 & 5, 2020 in place of our yearly Broadway musical. This will be a PALLADIUM MAINSTAGE event and will be included in our subscription package offerings. Friday subscribers will be seated on Friday evening July 3 and Sunday subscribers on Sunday afternoon July 5. TUESDAY 4-PACK SUBSCRIBERS WILL BE SEATED ON SATURDAY EVENING, JULY 4, 2020.

We offer subscriptions in 3-Packs and 4-Packs. To make the subscription process work, your subscription will be booked in the same seats for either Friday evening, Sunday afternoon, or Tuesday evening performances of the 3 operas and the POPS SPECTACULAR (if you so choose).

Pinocchio, an Opera Central FAMILY SERIES event, is scheduled for public performances November 16, 22 and 23. It is an ADD-ON EVENT available to subscribers before tickets go on sale to the general public. Seating is available on a first-come-first-served basis.

This year we have decided to present our usual Seasonal Sparkle show in a new format called “Holiday Sparkle”, which will feature 8 cabaret-style shows to be held at OPERA CENTRAL instead of the Palladium Theater. This will also be an ADD-ON EVENT available to subscribers before tickets go on sale to the general public.

The MAESTRO SERIES (Mornings and Cocktails), also available for subscription, are GENERAL ADMISSION events with seating on a first-come-first-served basis. Please arrive early for the best available seating. Subscription only sales for the Maestro Series are available online before individual ticket sales go on sale to the general public.

The FINAL STEP of the subscription process is PRINTING and MAILING tickets. All subscriber tickets are printed at the same time, so please expect delivery of your season tickets by the end of August via US Mail.
