Opera Etiquette

When attending performances, please keep the following in mind to ensure the enjoyment of all:

Please respect other patrons' enjoyment by turning off cell phones, pagers and watch alarms.

Babes in arms are not permitted.

Dress in whatever you are comfortable in. A night at the opera can also be an opportunity to get dressed in formal attire.

Be considerate of those with allergies to perfume and cologne.

Please arrive on time. Latecomers will be seated only at suitable breaks- often not until intermission.

Taking photos or making audio or video recordings during a performance is strictly prohibited.

Conversation, coughing, rustling through the program and unwrapping candies are distracting to other audience members as well as the performers.

Unwrap your candies or lozenges and check your program before the performance starts or at intermission.

The overture or prelude marks the beginning of the performance. Please stop talking at this point.

Please refrain from humming and singing along.
