Can I bring kids to a performance?

August 29, 2018 | By Opera Colorado |

Opera is so powerful because it reflects universal themes—which means some operas contain mature subject matter, such as adultery, revenge, or death. Even operatic comedies can frequently have suggestive humor. We recommend reading the plot beforehand and using your own judgement as to whether it’s appropriate for your family. Also consider your child’s maturity level, and whether they’d be comfortable sitting quietly for long periods of time. All that being said, we do love introducing children to opera and welcome well-behaved kiddos. But please be aware that all children must have their own ticket (no lap sitting).
