Frequently asked questions

What is opera?

Opera is a completely sung-through type of theatre where all the roles are performed by singers. Traditionally, operas are composed and sung in a classical music style, but some modern operas incorporate other music genres as well.

Are all operas in English?

Most operas are not in English — many are sung in languages like Italian, French, or German. Subtitles are available in English and various other languages at The Metropolitan Opera, and some operas also project supertitles above the stage.

What should I wear to an opera?

A night at the opera is a historically fancy event, so operagoers are encouraged to dress formally. There is no required dress code, however, so you're welcome to wear whatever you'll be most comfortable in.

How long is the average opera?

The length of operas varies, but most classical operas run between 2.5 and 4 hours. This runtime typically includes at least one 20-30 minute intermission, allowing you time to grab concessions and walk around the venue in between acts.

Do opera singers use microphones?

Opera singers do not typically wear microphones — they're trained to sing powerfully enough so even the people in the back of a massive concert hall can hear them loud and clear.
