SUBSCRIPTIONS FAQ

What is a subscription?

A pack of 2, 3 or 4 performances, purchased in advance. It is more cost effective to purchase a subscription than to buy single tickets throughout the year. A subscription gives you:

  • First access to the best seats at the best prices
  • Unlimited no-fee exchanges (value: $15 saving per ticket)
  • Access to preferred subscriber rate for additional tickets all season long
  • Exclusive event invitations, pre-sales and discount offers

There are two types of subscriptions: Premium Series and Create your Own Series (CYO).

What is a Premium Series?

The best value and the best seats! Previously known as Full Series, with a Premium Series subscription you see all ballets (four at Arsht Center and Broward Center, two at Kravis Center*) at your favorite theater in the same seats every time – and your seats are renewable year after year (excludes Nutcracker). Premium Series subscribers enjoy the deepest discounts and are seated first, so they have the pick of the best seats in the theater. You can add on The Nutcracker tickets at the preferred subscriber rate.

*A special note for our West Palm Beach subscribers: Our 2024/25 season at the Kravis Center will run March and April 2025, as such we are currently offering a two-ballet subscription at Kravis Center featuring our Winter Mix and Spring Mix season programs. If your schedule permits, the fall and early summer ballets are easily added onto to your subscription with priority access to comparable seats, preferred pricing, and transportation options for Broward and Miami performances.

What is a Create Your Own Subscription?

The most flexible subscription, and also great value – save on single ticket prices. For the 2024/25 Season you can select 3 or 4 performances and mix and match the dates and theaters that work best for you. With a CYO, your seats vary each year and each performance (i.e. you will not keep the same seats as you would with a Premium Series). The more you see, the more you save – plus, save on The Nutcracker.

How much is a subscription – what are the savings?

Premium Series subscribers enjoy the deepest discount and save on single ticket prices. CYO subscribers enjoy a preferred rate on single tickets. Ticket prices are based on seat location or zone in the theater. All prices are listed in the season brochure, and on the MCB website and are subject to change.

What is the Flexibility Guarantee for Subscribers?

We are committed to offering the flexibility you need and the excellence you have come to expect from Miami City Ballet. We want you to be as delighted by Miami City Ballet as we are to have you as a Subscriber.

Rest assured that should you need to change your subscription during the 2023/24 Season, we guarantee your ability to credit your purchase towards any future Miami City Ballet performance during the 2023/24 Season or donate your tickets to our nonprofit cause.

All account credits issued for 23/24 ballets need to be used by April 30, 2024 and must be used toward tickets to the current season or for your 24/25 season renewal. Credit will automatically be transferred into a tax-deductible donation after April 30.

Please contact Customer Relations for more information. Conditions apply.

Can I choose my seats?

Subscribers may select a general seating area and make more specific requests to our Customer Relations team or by making a note the seating notes section online. You will receive an email confirmation with your seats once you are seated. While we do our best to fulfill requests, we cannot guarantee they can be made exactly as submitted.

I am an existing subscriber and I want to change my seats, how does this work?

Seating changes will begin in June. Changes are processed in order of receipt. Put your change request on your order form or call Customer Relations to start your change request.

Can I exchange to see another performance?

Yes, subscribers can exchange dates to another performance free of charge. This is one of the most popular subscriber benefits.

  • Tickets for Program 1 – 4 (Fall Mix 1, Winter Mix 2, Spring Mix 3 and Swan Lake) performances are interchangeable within the same season. Subscribers can exchange into any other performance date, at any theater. This excludes Nutcracker.
  • Nutcracker tickets can be exchanged for another Nutcracker (i.e. Nutcracker tickets can’t be exchanged for tickets to another ballet and vice versa.)

  • Requests must be received at least 48 hours prior to your scheduled performance.
  • Exchanges are not allowed after the performance date has passed.

How do I find out who is dancing?

Casting is announced the week before each program begins. We announce this on social media (Facebook, Instagram) channels and on our website, on the program pages.

Dress code – what do I wear?

There is no dress code for Miami City Ballet. Some people dress up, some come straight from work, others are more casual. A ‘smart casual’ approach will always be appropriate. It can be cool in the theater, so an extra layer is useful.

What if I miss a performance by accident?

Unfortunately, we cannot exchange tickets from a past performance. To help prevent ticket holders from accidentally missing performances, we send pre-performance reminders by email before your show. If you don’t receive these reminders, contact Customer Relations and they can sign you up. Please note that ticket exchanges must be made 48 hours in advance of your performance. Ticket donations must be made by box office close the day prior to your performance.

I have a personal or medical issue that means I can’t attend, what can I do?

If you are requesting a ticket refund based on medical advice or extenuating circumstances, please contact Customer Relations, after a representative assesses your service case a credit may be issued for a future performance. All credits expire on April 30th the season they were issued. Any unused credits are turned into a donation to MCB.

What is the duration of the performances?

An approximate duration and intermissions is published on the MCB website. We also include this in the pre-performance emails sent to ticket-holders about 2 days prior to performance. As a general indication, most performances are approximately 2 hours long.

I’ve lost my tickets, what do I do?

In most cases lost tickets can be replaced with a Lost Ticket Voucher (this is slightly different from a new ticket), but we will ask you to confirm the basic details of the booking to do this. Please contact us as soon as you realize you have mislaid your ticket’s.

At the theater – You may also visit MCB Customer Relations at Will Call. With valid ID and/or Order Confirmation number, they can issue you a Lost Ticket Voucher. Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the performance if you have lost your tickets to ensure we are able to reissue your tickets in a timely manner.

What discounted ticket programs do you offer?

Student Rush – $20 tickets are available 1 week before each program. See our website for details.

The best way to ensure you are notified about discounts is to sign up to receive emails from Miami City Ballet. E-news subscribers receive discounts, competitions and other offers throughout the year.

What age children can attend the ballet?

Many children love seeing the ballet, and we encourage you to bring them! The Nutcracker is a family tradition for many people, and children will enjoy other works that Miami City Ballet presents.

As a general guide, we recommend children 4 and over will get the most out of the experience.

Do I need to purchase tickets for my baby?

Yes, every person no matter how old needs a ticket – please contact Customer Relations for info about tickets for babies. Failure to purchase a ticket for a child may result in not being admitted to the event. Refunds will not be provided if this situation occurs.

What are your terms and conditions for tickets?

All sales are subject to our Terms and Conditions available here.
