Opera Theatre will be introducing Valet Parking at all performances during the 2015 Festival Season. In preparation for this, valet will be offered at three performances this season: June 17 at 8 p.m. (“27”), June 21 at 8 p.m. (The Magic Flute), and June 24 at 8 p.m. (The Magic Flute). Drive up valet will be offered in the Circle Drive, which is in front of the Loretto-Hilton Center, accessible from Edgar Road for $8 per car. Please note that during these three performances, drive up paid parking will be available in Lot K instead of in Lot G.
Free parking is always available in the Garden Avenue Parking Garage, Lot C, and Lot O. Of these three, the Garden Avenue garage is the closest to Opera Theatre. Patrons may most easily access these parking options from S. Old Orchard Avenue.
ADVANCE PURCHASE PARKING FOR SUBSCRIBERS AND DONORS
When renewing an Opera Theatre subscription, subscribers can elect to pre-purchase parking in Lots J or K at a reduced rate of $5 per car. Opera Theatre donors at $1,000 and above receive this as a complimentary benefit. Subscriber access to purchase in these lots is first come, first served based on date of subscription purchase.
PARKING PURCHASED DAY OF PERFORMANCE FOR ALL AUDIENCES
Paid parking is available in Lot G at all performances at the rate of $6 per car. No pre-paid parking is available in this lot and spots will be assigned on a first come, first served basis.
NOT SURE ABOUT PARKING?
The best thing to do is arrive early. It’ll give you a chance to enjoy a picnic in the gardens. While we do offer closed-circuit coverage of the performances via television monitors in the lobby, remember that late arrivals will not be seated until an appropriate break in the music, determined by Opera Theatre management.
