We strongly encourage you to read the synopsis before the opera begins. This will be listed in your program at the Orpheum Theater, or you can read it here.

The garage closes 30 minutes after the production ends.

Guide to the Opera

Is this your first time attending an opera? If you're new to a certain performance, or just want to come prepared, it's great to read a synopsis or attend the pre-performance lecture prior to the show. Also, we don't expect you to learn a new language for the performance. All performances will have English supertitles projected above the stage so you can follow along. Click here for a helpful guide to the opera including suggestions on what to wear, when to arrive and about the orchestra.

In what language will The Capulets and the Montagues be presented?
The opera will be sung in Italian, the original language in which it was written. English supertitles will be available on a screen above the stage and in the front of the Loge.

Are there lighting or sound elements I should be aware of?
There will be theatrical lighting elements for this performance, as well as the use of video projections. The singers do not use microphones, just their natural voices projecting from the stage.
