Rules for a Viennese institution

Also in the 2021/22 season, standing room at the State Opera cannot be offered in its usual form. Standing room seating will remain widely available, yet standing room prices will remain unchanged. This ensures that this institution, which is so important for Viennese opera life, does not completely fall victim to the COVID-19 measures. The tickets still cost 10€. 

Of the 169 new seats created by this measure, however, all can now be occupied - the blocked seats will be eliminated with this 2021/22 season.

ATTENTION: You will find all information about the new COVID-19 1G-Booster-Plus regulations here!

Sales of the new Standing Room tickets start 120 minutes before the the performance begins. Standing Room tickets are only available at the Standing Room box-office, at the Operngasse entrance. A maximum of 2 tickets can be purchased per person.


→ If you are not yet a registered customer, you must register with our ticketing-service Culturall BEFORE BUYING THE TICKET. Your assigned customer number must be given when purchasing a Standing Room ticket on the evening of the performance. A valid ID must be presented when buing your ticket. Your name will be printed on the ticket, no other person is permitted to use the ticket.


→ To ensure that only visitors known to us by name are in the auditorium, we must be able to compare the name printed on the ticket with a valid ID. We therefore hope for your understanding when asking you to show us your ID at the entrance. If the name does not match the ID or if you cannot show your ID, we are unfortunately not allowed to let you into the auditorium. This measure serves exclusively to protect all visitors.
