Individuals holding tickets to affected performances should maintain their current tickets. When events are rescheduled, tickets for the original date will be honored. Our Ticket Office will be in touch with Ticket Holders (who purchased directly from Brooklyn Opera House) as details become available with further information.

If an event is canceled (rather than postponed) an automatic credit for the total amount purchased will be made in the form of the original payment and you will be notified via email. Our Ticket Office operations will be limited to online communications and phone calls during this time and will not be conducting in-person transactions.

Inclement Weather:

Inclement weather, especially during the winter/spring season, is part of our Iowa lifestyle - it can sometimes cause a few challenges! As they say in show business, “The show must go on!” Generally, performances will not be canceled due to unfavorable weather conditions and ticket refunds will not be available. In rare instances when a show is canceled due to weather, the information will be posted on our website and ticket holders for that specific performance will be notified.

Ticket Sales Policy:

All ticket sales are final. There are no refunds.  

There is no compensation if you miss a performance or cannot attend a future performance. Prices, dates, times, performers, and performances are subject to change at any time. Such changes do not dictate a refund or exchange unless authorized by the producer, promoter, or the Brooklyn Opera House. All ticket sales are final. Special promotions and ticket offers are valid on new ticket purchases only. They are not valid on previously purchased tickets and there are no price adjustments after a sale. Inclement weather happens and the safety of our guests is our top priority. However, performances are rarely canceled due to weather. If you are concerned about attending a performance due to inclement weather, please call the ticket office at 641-522-2424.
