Visiting us for the first time
How should I get to the Opera House?
We recommend public transit. We are conveniently located in Civic Center and BART and MUNI have stops within a 10-minute walk of the Opera House. Visit Directions and Parking for information on where to park. And to have the best experience possible, give yourself plenty of time to get here.
How do I brush up on my opera knowledge before the show?
Hear the music, see the artists, learn the story, and more on each opera's page. There are many great resources about opera online, from overviews of the genre to what to expect during a performance. Check out HuffPost’s Opera Guide for Beginners.
