- Opera is not amplified, meaning the orchestra and singers are not using microphones. If the lights are down, please stop talking, so others around you may hear every note.
- No food or drinks are allowed into the performance hall for Mainstage opera performances.
- Please silence all electronic devices.
- Recording and photography are prohibited.
How do I know if the opera is suitable for children?
To help you determine which opera to take your family to, we post a rating (similar to the movies) on the website performance pages. If you need more information, please contact Patron Services at 214.443.1000.
What should I wear to the opera?
Wear whatever makes you comfortable. We do not have a formal dress code and suggest that you dress for the experience you want to have at the opera. If you are enjoying a family outing on a weekend afternoon, casual and comfortable attire works for many, while some may like the opportunity to dress up.
