The health and safety of our patrons, employees, and artists is our number one priority. Here are some of the ways we’re keeping everyone safe.
All patrons are required to wear a mask. Masks with a valve, gaiters, scarves, etc are not permitted. Audience members who fail to follow the Front of House safety protocols will be promptly removed from the performance venue.
If for any reason you have to miss a performance due to COVID, we will work with you to exchange your tickets into another performance or arrange for a refund. We are also eliminating all exchange fees for this season. Exchanges can be made up to two hours before the performance.
All of San Francisco Opera’s health and safety protocols have been developed with a group of University California, San Francisco (UCSF) doctors led by epidemiologist Dr. George Rutherford.
