Latecomers and those who exit during the Mainstage opera performances will be seated at the discretion of the House Manager. We’ll seat you in a special section and then you can move to your purchased seat at the intermission. This is a courtesy to both the singers and other audience members. In order to get the most out of your opera experience, it is important to arrive prior to curtain time. Evening performances typically begin at 7:30 pm and matinees at 2:00 pm, but please check your tickets or consult the performance page on our website.
