Children’s Policy
We understand that many of our patrons desire to experience the Festival with their very young children. However, so as not to disturb the performers or other patrons we discourage audience members from bringing infants and children who under the age of three. We thank you for your understanding. Children are required to have a ticket for entry. We encourage families with young children to sit near the end of a row to allow for easier exit if needed during the performance.

Photo and Video Policy
No photos or videos of any kind allowed inside the Opera House during performances. We appreciate your cooperation.
