- Resident Artists
Every Portland Opera production features projected English translations.
In 1984, Portland Opera was one of the first companies to pioneer the use of one of the most important opera innovations in history—supertitles. With these quick and easy translations projected above the stage, you'll never miss a minute of the action or any of the jokes.
POST-SHOW Q & A
After each performance, join General Director Christopher Mattaliano for "Back Talk," a Q&A session about the performance. Guests include performers, conductors and directors.
Before each performance, join us for an engaging pre-curtain talk by Bob Kingston, Portland Opera's Resident Historian and Lecturer.
One hour before each performance. First Balcony Level Seating Area.
We encourage you to gauge your child's level of comfort with sitting quietly and considerately through a production. Keep in mind that productions can vary in length anywhere from two to three hours and often deal with mature themes. You know your child best! All patrons, including children, must be ticketed for the performance.
WHAT TO WEAR ... WHAT TO WEAR
For some, nights at the opera provide the chance to go formal. For others, it's suits and dresses. But you'll also find many who prefer something casual. Suit yourself on this one!
WHAT TIME TO ARRIVE
Portland Opera performances begin at 7:30pm sharp for evening performances and 2:00pm for Sunday matinees. Out of respect for the performers and for patrons who have arrived on time, latecomers (as well as people leaving the seating area during the performance) are seated only at intermission.
As a courtesy to others who are sitting only inches away (and who may be allergic to fragrances), it's always a good idea to use fragrances sparingly.
Out of respect for the performers and fellow patrons, please silence personal phones and electronic devices. These items can also be checked at the Coat Room, where you may notify the attendant of your seat location in the event of an emergency. Cameras and recording devices are strictly prohibited.
