8. THE TERMS OF THE SEASON CARDS
You can buy season cards for either a fixed series or an optional series, but not for both in the same season. When you buy a fixed series, you will achieve a 15 % discount on all subsequent purchases of standard and youth tickets, which is the highest discount that we offer. Season cards for the optional series offer a 10 % discount on the purchase of standard and youth tickets.
Season cards are purchased for the entire season running from 1 August to 31 July. Season cards are not automatically renewed.
Please note that the fixed series provide you with fixed seats, reserved to you in advance, for the large stages. These seats will be released if you do not renew your season card within the deadline stated in the material that we send to you prior to a new season.
With a season card for fixed or optional series, you will receive a programme, free of charge, for all the performances for which you have tickets, both for the series and for any additional purchases. The programme will be given to you when you have your season card scanned by a lobby staff member on the day of the performance.
8.3.1 Season cards for a fixed series
For a fixed series, you will receive four beverages free of charge per person for the series. This means that if you are three persons for the series, you will be allocated a total of 12 beverages. If you share your series with your companions, four drinks will be allocated to each of their cards per season.
8.3.2 Season cards for an optional series
For an optional series, you will receive four beverages free of charge per person holding tickets for at least six performances in a given season.
If you have four tickets for three performances and two tickets for the remaining three performances, then two persons will meet the requirement for at least six performances. You will therefore be allocated eight beverages. If you share your series with your companions, four drinks will be allocated to each of their cards per season.
8.3.3 Free beverages in general
You may choose between wine, beer, soft drinks, water, coffee or tea. You can redeem the beverages at all the Royal Danish Theatre's restaurants, bars and cafés - remember to bring your season card.
The beverages will be allocated to the customer profile at the start of the season on 1 August and may be used until the end of the season on 31 July. The account will then be reset. Beverages cannot be transferred from one season to the next.
Beverages cannot be redeemed at Moesgaard or Ulvedalene.
8.4 Exchange of tickets
Season card holders may exchange their free of charge, irrespective of whether the exchange of tickets is online or over the phone.
8.5 Service charges
As a season card holder, you will neither pay service charges on your tickets in the series, nor on tickets purchased subsequently.
8.6 Shipment costs
When purchasing season cards, the total series and any additional tickets will be sent free of charge by post. Shipment costs will be charged for any future shipments by post.
8.7 Season cards in combination with gallery cards or standing ticket passes
It is not possible to combine several discounts for the same performance in the same purchase. If you need a ticket on your gallery card or your standing ticket pass as well as a ticket with season card discount for one and the same performance, you must make two separate purchase transactions.
8.8 Season cards and companion tickets
If you had a companion ticket in your fixed series, we will automatically generate a companion ticket when we pre-book your fixed series for the following season. If this is to be changed, please contact the Royal Danish Theatre's Customer Service.
If you wish to add companions to your optional series, please contact the Royal Danish Theatre's Customer Service.
8.9 Share your season card with others
You may share your fixed series with several companions. If, for example, you are three persons in a series, you can share your series with your two companions, who will be given their own season card, own four drinks, and free programmes.
You can share your optional series with the persons who meet the requirements for six performances within one season, i.e. each companion will receive a season card and obtain the same benefits.
If as a season card holder you wish to share your series with one or several person(s), please contact the Royal Danish Theatre's Customer service.
A season card member will be registered in the ticket system and will be entitled to purchase tickets at a discount of 15 % for fixed series and 10 % for optional series. The member will furthermore receive his or her own card, which will entitle the member to a 10 % discount in the bar, café and restaurant as well as a 50 % parking discount at Q-park Magasin.
9. FURTHER DETAILS ON SEASON CARDS FOR A FIXED SERIES
9.1 Several series
You may sign up for all the fixed series you want.
If you have already signed up for a fixed series, you cannot subsequently sign up for an optional series. Anything you buy beyond your fixed series will be considered additional purchases.
9.2 Orchestra seats
Unfortunately, it is not possible to sign up for a fixed series with seats in the orchestra rows at the New Playhouse, the Opera House and at the Old Stage. This is due to the fact that these rows are not available for all performances as they may be used for scenography or a large orchestra.
During the season, some performances will open up for several or all orchestra rows, and you can then exchange your seats in the series to seats in the orchestra rows.
9.3 Exchange of tickets
When you buy a fixed series, you commit to the performances that we have included in the series. However, you are entitled to change to other dates, free of charge, for as long as there are seats available.
If all performances in the series are exchanged, we cannot guarantee that we can offer you your fixed seats in the following season.
Please note that the exchange service does not apply to performances and concerts that are only performed once.
10. FURTHER DETAILS ON SEASON CARDS FOR AN OPTIONAL SERIES
10.1 Several series

10.2 Exchange of tickets
You can exchange the tickets for the performances in your optional series if there are tickets available for the performance you want.
