Young Friends
Nights at the Opera

Under 45? Young Friends nights at Opera Theatre of Saint Louis are some of the most popular parties in St. Louis. With a Young Friends ticket at select performances during the season, audiences 45 years of age and younger can enjoy a pre-show dinner reception and open bar under one of two reserved tents in our gardens. Admission is only $49 for single ticket buyers, or you can save even more with a Young Friends “Pick Two” Pass!

New this year! Once our Young Friends pre-show dinners sell out, it is now possible to still purchase Young Friends tickets at these select performances. With these packages, you’ll receive in your ticket envelope not only a ticket to the performance, but also a drink ticket and a gelato ticket, which can each be redeemed at the concessions bar under the main tent.

Want to dine after? Due to popular demand, we’ve also added a post-show dinner and drinks option this year, exclusively for our Young Friends night at the world premiere of Shalimar the Clown on Sunday, June 19th. That night, the performance begins at 7 p.m. – so you can chose to dine before the show at 5:30 p.m. or after the show at 9:30 p.m.

Please note that Young Friends tickets are not mailed in advance of the performance and must be picked up prior to the performance. Tickets including the pre-show dinner are picked up at the reserved Young Friends tent. Tickets including complimentary wine and gelato are picked up at the box office the evening of the performance.
