Typically, Candlelight concerts take place twice each night with two back-to-back 60-65 minute performances. Doors open 30 minutes prior to each show so as to allow audiences time to settle down into their seats and take in the serene setting created by the flickering light. No late entry is permitted so as not to disturb the performance.
A recurring question is, What do you wear to Candlelight? The simple answer is that Candlelight has no dress code and there is no obligation to dress up in your finest attire—it’s not the opera. However, if you’re someone that needs a dress code, then think smart-casual with an emphasis on being comfortable, clean and relaxed.
