The season ticket holder undertakes to use the allotted seat(s) for the duration of the season and is liable to the Deutsche Oper Berlin for the full price of the subscription. The season ticket holder consents to pay for admission to all the performances associated with the subscription. The price of tickets to performances not attended will not be reimbursed.

6. Rescheduling of performance dates
Should the Deutsche Oper Berlin be compelled by unforeseen circumstances to cancel a particular performance covered by a season ticket at short notice, or change the performance, it reserves the right to reschedule the season ticket event and inform the season ticket holders in writing. Should season ticket seats be required due to the imperatives of a particular production or for other important reasons connected to the staging of the performance, the season ticket holder will be provided with tickets for alternative seats.
