Captioned Performances

This service is useful for anyone who is deaf, hard-of-hearing, has difficulty in following strong accents, or whose first language is not English. Captions are displayed in large print on either side of the stage. A captioner cues the text that appears in real time as the words are spoken by the performers. The captions also provide information about who is speaking and any sound effects or music that may be important to understanding the performance.

Supertitles are available for most operas and choral works. These are lyrics displayed in large print above the stage, and translated into English when required.
