It is considered proper etiquette to switch off your phone during an opera performance, as it is a live theatrical event that requires a focused and respectful audience. The use of mobile phones during a performance can be distracting not only to the audience but also to the performers on stage.

The sound and light of a phone can disrupt the ambiance of the performance, and the glow from a phone screen can be particularly distracting, especially in a darkened theatre. In addition, the sound of a ringing phone or even the vibration mode can be disturbing to both performers and fellow audience members.

Many theatres and opera houses have a policy that requires phones to be switched off during performances, and some even use technology to detect and block mobile phone signals in the auditorium.

It is recommended that you switch off your phone or put it on silent mode before the performance begins, and only use it in the event of an emergency. If you do need to use your phone, it is best to step outside the auditorium to avoid disrupting the performance.
