True Tickets Partners with Seattle Opera to Elevate Patron Experience and Ticketing Security

SEATTLE, May 07, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- True Tickets, the secure contactless digital ticketing service, is delighted to announce its partnership with Seattle Opera, one of the leading opera companies in the U.S. This collaboration marks a significant step forward for both organizations in enhancing the patron experience and ensuring ticketing security at performing arts venues across the Pacific Northwest.

Seattle Opera, which is celebrating its 60th anniversary season, has garnered international acclaim for its artistic excellence, especially surrounding its productions of Richard Wagner’s operas. Renowned for offering a supportive and nurturing environment for artists, Seattle Opera was respected for its groundbreaking work in racial equality practices before this topic became a widespread conversation in the arts. Committed to performing works from across the centuries including contemporary operas, over the past several years, the company has produced X: The Life and Times of Malcolm X, A Thousand Splendid Suns, Bound, Blue, Falling and the Rising, Yardbird, in addition to creating a nurturing and supportive environment for emerging composers and librettists through its Jane Lang Davis Creation Lab. In addition to operas, the company has an extensive school touring program and hosts many opera, music and other community programs at the new Opera Center, opened in 2018.

Under the new partnership, True Tickets will support Seattle Opera in offering an elegant patron experience that includes a seamless ticketing solution. True Tickets' proven technology ensures a consistent and secure ticketing experience for patrons of Tessitura organizations across the country and around the world, while offering valuable insights into their preferences and behavior.
