Accessibility Services

Wheelchair accessible seating is available at all price tiers on the Orchestra level. Step-free seating is available in rows A-Q, in the Parterres, and Opera Box C & F. All of our accessible seating is within 60 feet of the front of the stage.

When you place an order for a ticket, please indicate if you have a:

  • Wheelchair

Please also indicate if you are in need of companion seating.

IMPORTANT: Accessible seating locations (i.e.. Wheelchair spaces and companion seats) are intended for use by individuals with disabilities and their companions only. By purchasing tickets for accessible seating online through the Wilson Center, buyer represents that they or a member of their party has a disability that requires accessible features provided by the seating locations being purchased. The Wilson Center may investigate potential misuse of accessible seating where there is good cause to believe that such seating has been purchased fraudulently. In appropriate cases, the Center may, in its sole discretion, cancel an order for accessible seating that it believes to be fraudulent or improper and reserves the right to pursue legal action against individuals who fraudulently purchase tickets for accessible seating. The Center also reserves the right to relocate to other seats, patrons who have tickets for accessible seating locations, but who do not need accessible seating.

Assistive Listening Devices

Assistive Listening Devices (ALDs) are available at Guest Services. When you arrive at the Center for a performance, please see one of our volunteers at the Guest Services desk to check one out. ALDs connect through an FM transmitter to the sound system in the theater. Guests have the option to choose between standard headphones or a T-Coil loop that communicates with T-Coil hearing devices. Please make sure to return the device at the conclusion of the show.
