Attending The Opera

Be a Quiet Audience Member
The talents of Seattle Opera's singers and musicians are presented without amplification. There is no Dolby™ Stereo in McCaw Hall, and some of the most dramatic moments in opera are the quietest. The Overture is part of the performance. Please refrain from talking at this point. Please don't create noisy disruptions such as talking, rustling programs, or fiddling with candy wrappers. Turn off cell phones before entering the theater. And refrain from talking, humming, singing, or beating time to the music during the performance.
