SeatGeek today announced a multi-year partnership with the  Norwegian National Opera and Ballet (“​Den Norske Opera & Ballett”) – Norway’s largest  performing arts institution – to give opera and ballet attendees an improved ticket purchasing  experience through SeatGeek Enterprise’s powerful SRO platform.

Scheduled to go live in January 2019, attendees will find it easier than ever before to buy their  tickets via an intuitive and simple, transactional process; leading to Den Norske gaining additional  insights around existing, and new, audiences.

“Among the ​providers that ​entered the tender competition​ with their offers,​ SeatGeek – with the  SRO platform – clearly ​presented ​the best technol​ogical​ and functional solution​. It ​is a developed  ticket system​, ​already in operation in many ​theatre houses​ comparable to our​s​. ​Our​ need for a  system that can meet ​our ​publics requirements and expectations for an intuitive and simple  online purchase of tickets, has been decisive for our choice,” said Jørn Knutsen, Head of  Marketing at The Norwegian National Opera & Ballet.

The Norwegian National Opera and Ballet is resident at the Oslo Opera House, which opened in  2008 and has won international awards for its architectural design.

“It’s an honor to work with a world-famous performing arts organization, and to ticket one of the  most beautiful venues in the world,” said John Gibson, Managing Director of SeatGeek  Entertainment. “We look forward to delighting their users with a ticket-buying experience that is  easy, intuitive, and yet still consistently improving through investment and innovation.”

SeatGeek Enterprise continues to see strong momentum in Europe across the live entertainment,  cultural and sports sectors with its powerful SRO platform; having partnered with Really Useful  Theatres Group in London’s iconic West End in 2017 and more recently with Manchester City of  the Premier League and the Leicester Tigers of Premiership Rugby for 2018/19 season and  beyond.

SeatGeek, which is headquartered in New York, has also seen significant growth in the United  States over the past year, having announced partnerships with the Dallas Cowboys, the New  Orleans Saints and Pelicans, the National Football League and Facebook.
