How can I buy tickets?
Tickets for performances presented by the Matsumoto Performing Arts Centre can be purchased directly at our ticket counter (open 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.) or reserved by calling our ticket call center (Tel: 0263-33-2200 , 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.). You may also reserve or purchase tickets online 24 hours-a-day. However, all services are only available in Japanese.
Are there foreign language audio guides available for the performances?
It depends on the specific performance. For performances that do offer foreign language audio guides or subtitles, detailed information about these services is listed on the webpage for each performance.
If I am running late, can I still enter the theater?
For performances presented by the Matsumoto Performing Arts Centre, some restrictions may apply to late entry due to safety and production-related concerns. Depending on the specific performance, you may need to sit in a different seat than listed on your ticket. In case you do arrive late, a staff member will guide you to your seat.
For performances presented or hosted by other organizations, please contact that organization for information regarding late arrival.
