Faculty, staff and students are eligible to receive complimentary tickets to most performances. All complimentary tickets are based on availability and must be claimed with a valid Conservatory ID or email.

  • Production Cast and Crew (including designers, music director, choreographers of theater and opera productions, coaches, conductors, technical director, stage manager, props manager and student crew): Two comps per production (not per performance) in addition to faculty/staff tickets when eligible – must be reserved in advance by contacting the Audience Services Manager.
  • TBC Faculty/Staff (does NOT include student employees): Two comps per production (not per performance) – must be reserved in advance by contacting the Audience Services Manager.
  • TBC Students, not in production: One comp per performance via student rush – must be claimed at the Box Office day of performance (see Student Rush information below).
  • Director, choreographers of dance productions, conductors of opera productions and division director (of corresponding division): One comp per performance, plus four additional comps per production – one comp per performance is automatically reserved, but should still be claimed at the box office for proper seating assignments. The four additional comps must be reserved in advance by contacting the Audience Services Manager.

Any additional comps for press, industry professionals, etc. must be requested through and approved by the Audience Services Manager and are not guaranteed.

Student Rush

Conservatory students can only reserve comps in advance if they are involved in the production. All other Conservatory students must arrive at the performance one hour prior to curtain to wait in a student rush line. Complimentary tickets (one per person with a valid Conservatory ID) for that evening’s performance will be distributed as available. Student rush tickets are always first-come, first-served and based on availability.

Due to increased demand for Boston Conservatory performances, any additional tickets must be purchased via the box office at full price.

PLEASE NOTE: All comps will be held at WILL CALL on performance evenings. Any unclaimed complimentary tickets are subject to be released for sale or reassignment beginning 15 minutes prior to the scheduled performance start time.
