The following are the general terms and conditions applying to the purchase of tickets to performances, educational programs and Junior camps of The Metropolitan Orchestra. By purchasing a ticket, you will be taken as having read, understood and accepted the terms and conditions. If you acquire tickets on behalf of anyone else, you are deemed to have agreed to these terms on your own behalf and as an agent for them.
1) The right of admission is reserved.
2) Tickets and Ticket Refunds
A booking fee may be applicable on ticket purchases.
Tickets are valid only when purchased from The Metropolitan Orchestra or an authorised agent.
Refunds are not available after a purchase has been confirmed except as outlined in these terms and conditions or if required by law.
Circumstances under which you are entitled to a refund include:
* If we cancel an event
* If we reschedule an event to a time more than two hours earlier or later than originally programmed and you cannot or do not wish to attend
* If we issue a ticket to you by mistake.
Any refund payable will be made to the original purchaser, and where practical/possible to the original form of payment.
If you purchased your ticket from another authorised ticket seller, you should apply to them for your refund. Refunds will not be issued for tickets purchased from an unauthorised seller or a reseller.
Please note that any vouchers issued by the NSW Government including Discover Vouchers, Parent Vouchers and Creative Kids Vouchers are non-refundable once redeemed. If a specific event is canceled/rescheduled by TMO, then the amount of any applicable vouchers redeemed may be eligible for a refund in accordance with the rules specified above.
Unless required by law we will not be liable for auxiliary expenses (e.g. cost of travel or parking) incurred in connection with your attendance or non-attendance at an event, including if the event is canceled or rescheduled.
Lost or forgotten tickets will only be replaced only where The Metropolitan Orchestra is satisfied that such tickets have been purchased by you in accordance with these terms and conditions, and where proof of purchase is available.
