Detroit Opera's COVID-19 Safety Plan - Detroit Opera

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we operate the Detroit Opera House differently to ensure a safe environment for our patrons, artists, volunteers, and staff.



We are thrilled to welcome guests to the Detroit Opera House.  The safety of our guests, artists, volunteers and staff is our greatest priority. In response to the current COVID-19 infection numbers, we have updated our safety protocols as outlined below.  As always, we will follow guidelines and recommendations as set forth by the CDC and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.   We will continue to monitor and adjust these policies as appropriate.* 


Detroit Opera recommends but no longer requires audiences to wear a mask inside the Detroit Opera House.  We strongly encourage guests to wear a mask inside our theatre.


Detroit Opera strongly recommends COVID vaccinations but no longer requires guests to show proof of vaccination or a recent negative COVID test to enter the Detroit Opera House.


We all have a shared responsibility to keep patrons, artists, staff, and volunteers safe. Please do not visit the Detroit Opera House if you:

          • Feel sick or have cold symptoms.
          • Have symptoms of any infectious illness or have been exposed to someone who has confirmed or suspected COVID-19 within the past 14 days
          • Have a body temperature of 100.4 or higher, unexplained or abnormal coughing, sneezing, sore throat, fatigue or difficulty breathing
          • Believe you may be carrying or are ill with COVID-19

Enhanced cleaning procedures are in place. You may notice our staff disinfecting areas regularly around the building.

Hand sanitizing stations are located in highly visible and accessible locations throughout the building.

Training protocols and routine evaluations are ongoing.
