The Federal Ministry for Education, Science and Culture takes care of organizational details, while applications and ticket allocations are handled exclusively by the school boards of the provinces and of the City of Vienna. Teachers are the only adults to accompany the students to the opera. At the end of November, the City school board sends out a notice to all schools. Only then can teachers of children in the relevant classes send in their written ticket orders. No applications are accepted before this time.
