We welcome everyone to enjoy the show in the way that is most comfortable for them. Perfect for first time opera-goers, those looking for a more casual experience, students and youth who are curious about opera, and individuals with sensitivity concerns or disabilities. While the opera performance itself will have no changes, in order to make this experience more accessible, we will adapt the performance experience in the following ways:

  • A relaxed atmosphere allows patrons to talk and vocalize as they wish.
  • There is no ‘Shushing’ during the show. If you are someone who enjoys silence during the opera, this performance might not be for you.
  • Patrons are free to leave and re-enter the seating area as needed.
  • An additional, quiet, calm space will be available for patrons if they wish to take a break from the performance.
  • We encourage patrons to bring their own noise canceling headphones and fidgets if desired.


Skip into a whimsical world of furry friends and adventures in Fantastic Mr. Fox. Roald Dahl’s classic novel comes to life in this delightful opera by American composer Tobias Picker. Join Mr. Fox and his clever animal companions as they outsmart three bumbling farmers. Perfect for opera enthusiasts and families alike, this new production performed at Lauritzen Gardens will leave you with a smile as big as Mr. Fox’s plans!
