Here are some tips to make your experience an enjoyable one. And don’t miss the special “sneak peek” below!

Arrive early
Allow yourself plenty of time to find parking, get into the theater, use the restroom, find your seat, and read the program. The venue opens one hour prior and the house opens one-half hour prior to the performance.

Duration
The performance is approximately two hours with intermission.

Parking
Because everyone is looking for parking at the same time, please allow extra time to find a space and make your way into the theater. See list of parking options below.

Late Seating
To ensure an enjoyable experience for patrons, late seating is restricted. If you arrive after the performance begins, you will be seated in an alternate section or at intermission.

Restrooms
Visiting restrooms before the show begins may help you avoid the inevitable long lines during intermission. At the Orpheum, there are restrooms in the basement that often have shorter lines.

No Recording
Photo and video recordings of the performance are not allowed. Our dancers typically greet the audience in the lobby after the show and you are welcome to take photos with the performers at that time.

Sneak Peek
Learn more about the ballet before you you go!

For Children
We invite you to review The Nutcracker Study Guide  we prepared with our youngest patrons in mind.
