Foursquare Tips

  • The open air arena is amazing! But don't expect traditional opera dress here. Don't wear more than a cocktail dress or you will be over dressed. Loved the Grand Duchess, disappointed in the dress code
  • Come for an opera or a concert and experience the beautiful sunset over the mountains. Have a tailgate beforehand!
  • Arrive early for the pre-opera lecture.
  • Just to the left of the ticket booth, off of the parking lot, one can find several picnic tables with wonderful views. Great spot to bring your own dinner before a show.
  • Easily the most amazing outdoor music venue I've ever seen. Make sure to reserve well in advance
  • Didn't see an opera, but a very cool unique building to check out - walk around the side for access.
  • The best Opera venue out there. It's going to be hard to top this Opera experience. Go all the way around to the front for a better view of the stage.
  • Amazing venue in a spectacular setting
  • Very cool venue but they're strict about being allowed back to your seat if you have to get up to use the restroom, they'll hold you out until intermission no matter when you get up.
  • This is a beautiful venue . We try to come every couple years. Dress is rather casual, unfortunately.
  • Can't Miss Brenda Rae.
  • You can go as casually or as elegantly as you want. Anything goes.
  • Parking is horrible. You dress for the Opera in heels and you're made to walk extremely far up and down hill in the dark. Shuttles are slow & few. No obvious way to park on upper level
  • Five - count 'em , five - new productions in 2012!
  • Arrive early to see the sunset throught the back wall of the stage.
  • Look out for the special Youth Nights every summer: Families can attend final dress rehearsals at radically reduced prices, and learn more during the informational 3, 2, 1...Opera! programs.
