Attending The Opera

First Timer's Guide« PreviousNext »
Don't Be Late
Unlike a movie theater, Seattle Opera does not allow latecomers to take their seats after the performance has begun. (Those who miss the curtain can still take in the show—live—on television monitors in the lobby. Latecomers can then take their seats at a suitable interval—usually intermission.) Also, if you leave in the middle of the performance, you won't be allowed back into the auditorium until the next break, usually intermission.
