If you’re looking to experience opera under the stars, this is your chance.

Here are some things to know before attending Opera at the Beach or Opera in the Park

1. It’s FREE.

Yes, that’s right. The broadcast is free! But make sure you let us know you’re coming. RSVP to get updates and tips. And plan to come early to get the best seats.

The venues open at 4 p.m. and the show starts at 6 p.m.

  1. Be Prepared for a Little Chill

Bring a sweater, blankets, or someone to snuggle with. Like most Southern California days, it’ll be warm until the sun sets, and then you’ll probably want something (or someone) to keep you warm.

  1. Bring a Chair or a Blanket to Sit On

Bring your own seating: blankets, low lawn seats, and cushions.

  1. Pack a Picnic or Plan to Pick Up Something On-Site

Food and beverages will be available for purchase.  Outside food and beverages are also allowed.

  1. What to Leave at Home

Grilling or cooking is prohibited. Avoid large coolers (handheld coolers are OK, but subject to search). No canopies, tents or sun umbrellas. Sorry, no pets. Smoking is not permitted in the Park or at the Beach.

LA Opera is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to the greater good.
