Etiquette

When should I arrive?

If this is the first time that you are traveling to the Abraham Chavez, we suggest arriving 45 minutes before curtain to the theater. Doing so will help you avoid traffic and give you plenty of time to find your seat. Latecomers will only be allowed in after intermission.

When do I clap?

Whenever the music inspires you. You may yell Bravo! for the men, and Brava! for the women at the end of their arias, if you think that they did well.

What to Wear

No dress requirements or dress codes are required when attending the opera. Typically, El Paso Opera patrons will be dressed in cocktail attire, others in business attire and others formally dressed. However, no matter what your attire may be, you are always welcome to El Paso Opera.
