YOU’VE HAD A FLIGHT OF WINE. HOW ABOUT A FLIGHT OF OPERA?
Admit it: you’re curious about opera. But perhaps you’re a little worried you won’t fit in or understand what’s going on. Trust us, all kinds of people attend LA Opera, and if you can read this paragraph, you can read the subtitles we provide right above the action onstage.

We admit, though, that like wine, opera can take a bit of tasting before you get completely hooked (our true intent). So we’ve carefully curated a flight of opera just for virgin taste buds and paired it with some basics to help get you started.

WITH A NEWCOMER PACKAGE, YOU’LL GET:

  • A really good deal (like 10% off regular tickets). Packages start at only $56!
  • Pre-show discussion on Newcomer Nights about what you’re going to see and hear so you become an expert
  • “Newbies only” intermission receptions on Newcomer Nights with complimentary wine (of course)

Should anything change and you don’t feel comfortable joining us, we’ll be happy to exchange or refund your tickets free of charge.

TICKET DONATION

If you can’t make a performance of that opera, don't fret,  you may donate your ticket back to LA Opera (FYI: we are a non-profit organization) for a tax-deductible donation (now it's your accountant's problem).**

**Ticket donations may be made up until two hours prior to curtain time of that performance; exceptions may be made for sold-out performances.
