Passport Performance

Festive theme and fun activities throughout the Opera House

Look out for Passport Performances! Each Passport Performance has a festive theme, with fun activities throughout the opera house, giveaways, and special refreshments.

Nutcracker is most magical for children ages 5 and up. No children under 3, including babes in arms. Everyone entering the Opera House, regardless of age, must have a ticket, and children must be seated with an accompanying adult. No lap sitting.

All attendees, regardless of age, must have a ticket to enter and must occupy their own seat. No infants, please. 

If you're thinking of bringing young children to the Ballet, we've put together this handy guide to make the experience smooth and enjoyable for everyone.
