Buyer Beware:

The Royal Theatre and McPherson Theatres website (www.rmts.bc.ca) is the only authorized website for purchasing tickets to Dance Victoria performances. Be aware of paid ads and other online ticket outlets that may sell tickets to our performances. Buyers are often charged in US funds and at different prices than the set pricing without seat assignments. Always choose the Royal and McPherson site for your purchases.
