Late Seating Policy

Opera Grand Rapids performances begin promptly at 7:30 PM for evening performances and 2:00 PM for matinees. Doors open one hour before curtain. It is suggested that you arrive a minimum of 30 minutes or more before the performance. Please leave ample time to account for parking and traffic conditions.

We want our patrons to have the most enjoyable experience at the opera. To minimize interruptions for our patrons and artists, Opera Grand Rapids follows a strict late seating policy.

Late-comers will be seated at the earliest break in the performance or at intermission. Opera Grand Rapids reserves seating at DeVos Performance Hall where late-comers can enjoy the performance until be they are able to take their assigned seats. Please note that if you leave your seat during the performance, upon your return to the hall you will be ushered to the late seating area.
