Surtitles and braille librettos

While the performance will be in English, it can sometimes be difficult to make out sung words in complex music. By popular demand, we are again including surtitles (like subtitles, but projected above the stage) for all sung words. The Thursday March 12th performance will also include surtitles for all dialogue.

For the visually impaired, we are also making available braille librettos for complementary loan. Just stop by the box office!
