Join the network of opera fans in your university!

Are you a student at the UZH or ETHZ who is interested in opera and classical music? Do you want to learn more about the genre, get insights about the performances and go watch operas in a friendly environment? If so, we would like to welcome you in our community! The Zurich Student Opera Society is open for all students, whether you are a beginner or a veteran to the genre! The membership, which is of course free of charge, gives you access to our newsletter ad to our events. And non-members are also welcome to join!

Workshops & performance visits

We organise three or four main events per semester. A diversified set of plays is selected (usually from the Zürich Opernhaus calendar) with the goal of exploring langages, styles and time periods. On the day of the event, we gather in a University room for a workshop about the play, in which we will dive down into the plot and musical aspects of the opera. The workshops are organised by our members, and you can feel free to contribute if one of the performances interests you. After a quick networking drink, we then move to the Opernhaus and enjoy the performance together!


The ZSOS is a student community. We are not affiliated with the Opernhaus and getting the ticket is generally the members own responsibility. However, the Opernhaus offers very convenient offers for students and young people. With these methods, you can usually get a premium seat for a very cheap price. What follows is a summary, but we recommend following the links to the official Opernhaus website for more correct and up-to-date information. We strongly recommend that you buy your ticket before coming to the workshop.

  • Student tickets: you can buy a student ticket by phone or in person for a very discounted price, starting one week before the event. Opernhaus student tickets
  • Club Jung: the young viewers club of the Opernhaus. We recommend this sourcing method as discount tickets are available for purchase online since 13:00 on the day of performance. Club Jung
