Plan Your Visit

There is no dress code. You will see everything from jeans to evening gowns and formal suits. Most people use it as a chance to enjoy dressing up in style.

Operas begin promptly at the scheduled time. If you are late, you will be escorted to the nearest late seating area. At intermission ushers may be able to show you to your seat. Plan ahead for Atlanta traffic and arrive early.

Because of the music, and sometimes complex plots, you will very likely enjoy the performance better if you spend a few minutes familiarizing yourself with the story and characters in advance. Operas are written in many languages, and to help audiences follow what’s happening, English supertitles (similar to subtitles in a film) are displayed on a legible screen above the stage.

Each venue has its own parking system. Check each venue’s website for information about location and cost for parking.
