The most important thing to Shreveport Opera is that you have a great time attending our shows! Whether you are new to opera or a seasoned opera-goer, your enjoyment and experience is our top concern. 

Below, you can find a few simple tips that will answer any questions or fears you might have about attending an opera production! 



Perhaps everyone's biggest question about attending a show is, "What do I wear?" The answer: whatever you feel like! You can dress up or down, in jeans or a gown, but make sure you wear something that makes YOU feel comfortable.  Most opera-goers you’ll see will be wearing business attire.  



Another major question we hear when asked about attending the opera is whether the opera is in English or not. Opera has been composed in almost every language you can think of, including English, which means that we will usaully have a show or two in our season that will be sung in our native language. However, many operas were composed in Italian, German, French, Russian, etc., and will be sung in those languages as well. But have no fear - whether you're attending a show sung in English or in a foreign language, we will project the English translation on a screen above the stage so you know exactly what's going on! We also recommend visiting our production description pages to read the synopsis of the show before you see it. 


We encourage all the applause and positive cheering you feel compelled to express! It's customary to wait until the end of an aria (or song) to applaud, but if you're unsure, you can always wait to see when others around you are doing. At the end of an act or an opera it's also encouraged to give a standing ovation to any performers you particularly enjoyed! 



Please note that no photography or recording of any kind is permitted inside the theater.



As in any live performance, it's important to remember to turn off all cell phones and to refrain from talking, opening wrappers or excessive coughing. If you need to leave the performance to take a call or drink some water, please do so as quickly and quietly as possible. If you do decide to leave, you will be re-sat at the next appropriate opportunity as to not disturb the other audience members, usually at the end of an act or at a scenery change. 




Valet parking is available at the front entrance of the Riverview Theater for $10, or you can ride the free limo shuttle, provided by Kilpatrick’s Rose-Neath, from the Regions Bank parking garage on Milam Street that runs continuously starting at 6:00 p.m. the night of each opera. There is also a free lecture in the theater at 6:30 p.m. before each production. Ample free parking is available downtown.
