Welcoming You Back, Safely

The health and safety of our patrons, employees, and artists area our number one priority.
Here are some of the ways we’re keeping everyone safe.

Masks Icon


All patrons must wear well-fitted masks that cover their nose, mouth, and chin when inside the facility unless they are actively eating or drinking. A non-vented N95 mask is strongly recommended. A well-fitted mask does not include a scarf, ski mask, balaclava, bandana, turtleneck collar, single layer of fabric, or any mask that has an unfiltered one-way exhaust valve. Audience members who fail to follow the Front of House safety protocols will be promptly removed from the performance venue.

Refund and Exchange Icon


If you must miss a performance due to a change in our safety protocols, we will work with you to exchange your tickets for those of another performance or arrange for a refund. We are also eliminating all exchange fees for this season. Exchanges can be made up to two hours before the performance.

Doctor Icon


All of San Francisco Opera’s health and safety protocols have been developed with a group of University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) doctors, led by epidemiologist Dr. George Rutherford.
