Your Visit

The Des Moines Metro Opera Experience

Experience world-class opera in one of the most unique and intimate theaters in the nation. Every seat in our 467-seat theater is closer to the center of the stage than the first row at the Metropolitan Opera, bringing you up close and personal with the powerful drama on the stage.

Before the show, reserve a seat at our one-of-a-kind restaurant and enjoy exquisite cuisine inspired by the evening's opera or create your own al fresco meal wtih our new À La Carte Picnics. Warm up for every opera with a free pre-performance preview. After the show, stick around to mix and mingle with our incredible artists under the stars in our beautifully landscaped gardens.

The possibilities are endless. Create your own unique story with DMMO!
