Generation O


Welcome to Generation O, Washington National Opera's program for students and young professionals between the ages of 18 and 35! GenO is DC's premier young professional arts-lover program, welcoming those who are interested in opera to connect with each other and the music.

GenO members will receive special discounts for individual operas via e-mail offers. The "Current Offers" tab on the right of this page will also provide a list of available discounts.

The fine print:

Offer subject to availability
There are a limited number of performance tickets available through GenO, so purchase yours early.
Purchaser must be an age-verified GenO member
When picking up tickets from the Box Office, you must present valid proof of age. The Kennedy Center will also verify that you are registered in our system as a GenO member. You may purchase up to two GenO priced tickets for GenO performances.

Outside the 18-35 age range?

Don't feel left out. There are still many ways for you to enjoy low-cost or free performances at the Kennedy Center:

Sign up for regular offers
If you have not already done so, create a general Kennedy Center online account to receive the Kennedy Center's regular e-newsletter. It's free, and when you choose your performance interests (ballet, theater and musicals, opera, etc.) during signup, you'll receive emails with special offers when they're available.
Free is always free
Enjoy free performances on the Millennium Stage every day of the year at 6 p.m., no tickets required.

Thank you for your interest in Generation O and the Kennedy Center. Enjoy the show!
