It is suggested that you arrive 30 minutes before the performance. Please be sure to leave ample time to account for weather, traffic conditions, and parking when traveling to the Academy of Music and the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts. Out of respect for the artists and the patrons already seated, latecomers will be seated only during appropriate breaks in the performance or at the intermission.

Latecomers will be asked to wait in the lobby until intermission. Should you arrive late, the Opera provides video monitors in the lobby where you may watch the performance until you are seated.
