e-Ticket – Online-Ticket
The term 'e-Ticket' or 'Online-Ticket' indicates that the tickets are sent to you electronically via email, rather than printed at the venue box office and mailed. Tickets are e-mailed as an attached PDF file (Portable Document File).You can print the e-Ticket at your convenience and/or save the attachment onto your computer. Any inkjet or laser printer can be used to print your tickets.Tickets should be printed in full size on plain white paper and can be printed in color or black ink. Adobe Acrobat Reader 7.0 or higher is used to open the Ticket PDF Attachment. Adobe can be downloaded for free at http://www.adobe.com/reader. With e-Ticketing you are spared all concerns regarding misplaced tickets, slow delivery, and you will be charged no shipping fees.
If you do not have a printer you can still order tickets online; simply forward your purchase confirmation email to any computer with a working printer, then print. You may also log into your free MyClassictic online account and print. Additionally, you have the option of contacting our Customer Center to have the e-Ticket sent by fax, at no charge. For specified performances you can also receive a Mobile Ticket (paperless)from Classictic, this option, when available is noted in the order process. To Top
Mobile-Ticket/Handy Ticket When you go paperless (available on select events), you enter the performance with two things you're carrying around already: your photo ID and your mobile phone. No-paper ticketing means no forgetting them on the kitchen counter! At the venue show your Mobile-Ticket and personal ID for entry. Easy. Your Mobile-Ticket arrives via SMS when you select this option. It will be indicated in the event description if there is a Mobile Ticket option available. You will receive an e-Ticket in addition to the Mobile-Ticket. To Top

ClassicTips - New to Classical? Here are a few tips and explanations:
__Opera__ Heroes and villains, friendship, love, lust, betrayal, murder, hell and redemption; all this, and more - that's opera. You select from the entire range of human emotion when choosing an opera. Consider learning the story of your chosen opera in advance of the performance if you are unfamiliar with it. Operas are traditionally performed in the language in which they were composed; often Italian, German or French. Some opera performances offer rolling translations above the stage. Dressing for the opera today is not the complicated ball gown and tuxedo affair of the past. Wear something comfortable. In many larger theaters a snack for the intermission can be reserved in advance with the concessions staff. And don't forget to turn off your mobile phone at the beginning of every performance!
__Concert__ Classical Concerts come in all shapes and sizes. If you are new to classical music consider a – well – consider a classic; Bach sacred music, Beethoven symphonies, Mozart quartets, Strauss waltzes, Vivaldi concertos – these all form a great platform from which to jump into classical music. These melodies will have a familiar ring, as they have all become embedded into our culture today. If you have a favorite artist, venue, composer, or city, you can search the portal and find a matching event. In addition to traditional concert settings you can also select outdoor events and concerts, performances in historic landmarks, castles and cathedrals, events with dinner, wine or tours. Venues on land or on the water, sorry, no 'air' concerts on offer at the moment!
__Chamber Music__ Chamber music is great classical music on a small scale – up close and personal - with fewer musicians and often performed in a smaller setting. Quartets, chamber orchestras, voice with accompaniment, scaled down opera performances and soloists offer a wide selection of unforgettable events. You thought chamber music was boring? Think again!
__Jazz, Ballet and Folk Music Performances__ Many different types of music form the classical music world. Consider trying something new. Experience a Folk Music performance and you are taking part in the history of the music and culture of a region. Folk music is living history. Composers of the great classical works and also jazz composers often built on these early folk melodies, rhythms and tonalities. Jazz is like breathing. Try to listen without tapping your toe, your glass, the tabletop – you will find this difficult! Pure emotion marries rhythm, that's jazz. Often available to book with dinner, enjoy a jazz event and tap away. Ballet combines the grace and elegance of the human body moving in sync with spectacular music; it's beautiful, and also entertaining - that's ballet. And did you think Ballet was just for those of the feminine persuasion? Think again. Have you ever lifted a person over your head, jumped high enough to spin 2 or 3 rotations in the air, or stood on your toes for any length of time? Ballet is physical. Ballet is exciting.To Top
