Keeping You Safe

OrpheusPDX is committed to ensuring the safety of patrons and company members of both of our August productions. We will be requiring patrons to wear face coverings for the duration of their visit(s). Vaccination status will not be checked upon arrival, but we strongly recommend that patrons be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

In the event that you contract COVID-19 and have tickets to a performance, we are able to issue a full refund of your ticket minus the ticket processing fee. Please send proof of a positive COVID-19 test to BoxOffice@OrpheusPDX.org. We ask that you do not attend the performance if you are feeling under the weather.

Frequently Asked Questions

Don’t worry about following the drama — we project English captions above the stage at every performance. These are sometimes referred to as surtitles. They’re like the subtitles of a foreign movie.

No — whether you prefer a cocktail dress or a t-shirt and shorts, all attire is welcome. This is Portland, after all!

Unlike the timeless argument about not applauding between movements at the symphony, no one in opera really cares. Wait until the performer finishes singing (solo or group) and applaud if you are moved to do so. At the end of the show, you may hear shouts of “Bravo” — feel free to join in!

Intermission typically lasts about 20 minutes — enough time to use the restroom, enjoy a beverage, or mingle with your fellow audience members. 

Just because the opera is over doesn’t mean the night has to be! OrpheusPDX has a Q&A session after each performance with performers fresh from their dressing rooms. Feel free to join us — let us know what you thought of the show or ask any question you may have.
