To avoid the inconvenience of queuing at the car park pay machines when the performance finishes, an arrangement has been made with the car park operator to accept advance payment of €6, covering the period between 18:00 and 03:00 hours on performance days.
For this the user will have to pay before the start of the opera performance, by selecting on the screen of the car park pay machines the option "preventa" (advance sale, on the upper left of the screen).
ABAO Bilbao Opera has made an arrangement with the car park of the Zubiarte Shopping Centre for people who identify themselves as ABAO Bilbao Opera members, or who have purchased tickets for the opera, to pay in advance at the pay machines at a special rate of €4 for 6 hours' parking, on performance days. This option will be marked on the pay machines and the security guard will also be available to help users.
The hand-held programme contains a short summary of the plot of each act of the opera, and each performer's biography.
Free for members. General public € 5
