What NOT to bring into the venue:
Additional important notes for ticketholders:
Springtime weather in Texas often means light sprinkles; the show will continue as long as it is safe for the audience, the orchestra, and the singers. Bring a light rain jacket or poncho just in case! Austin Opera might pause a performance for a stronger passing shower – not unlike a rain delay in baseball – and resume as soon as possible.
The Austin Opera App will keep you up-to-date on all things Tosca!
Notifications, health and safety info, exclusive access to content, a super easy way to donate – all at your fingertips.
Tosca will be performed at GERMANIA INSURANCE AMPHITHEATER at CIRCUIT OF THE AMERICAS (COTA).
This outdoor venue is located just southeast of the airport near TX-130 & FM812 at 9201 Circuit of the Americas Blvd.
Build extra time into your arrival plans for traffic, parking, shuttling or walking, and the check-in process. A reminder that the gates open at 6:00 p.m. Our suggestion is to arrive no later than 6:45 p.m. – we want you to have time to settle into your seats (with a drink and snack of your choice, perhaps) before the opera begins!
There will be two COTA entrances open for our shows: Elroy Rd. and FM 812. If your GPS or mapping app directions take you to a different entrance, try inputting “Lot A – COTA” to route you to the main south (FM 812) gate, where the big lighted sign is visible. Our parking lots are easily accessible from the main entrance and there will be big road signs to guide you once inside the gates.
Ample standard parking in COTA’s Lot H is included with all tickets. Limited upgraded parking is available for $20 in Lots B & C. (pre-purchase upgraded parking for Sunday, or purchase day-of, credit or debit only; no cash). Lot D is already filled. Handicapped parking is available for free in Lots B, C, and D.
All parking is on a first-come-first-served basis.
Frequent open-air shuttles will be available at designated pick-up spots to whisk patrons from Lot H to the box office and venue entrance. Lots B, C, and D are within a very short walk but ADA shuttles will be available for patrons who need them.
