Digital pass purchases will include any available clips, trailers, lectures, coffee talk videos, pre-show lecture videos, and post-show Q&A videos. If available, this content will be populated in the same page where you will find your digital performance (see "Where Can I Access My Content.")

Please note that Portland Opera Onscreen content is not interactive, and extra content varies from digital performance to digital performance.

How do I turn on captions and expand the content to full screen?

To turn on English captions for your digital performance simply toggle the "CC" button on in the lower right-hand corner of the video.

Videos can be expanded to full screen by selecting the four arrows in the lower right-hand corner. Select the gear icon to access video quality settings. We recommend selecting "1080p" for the best image quality.

Once expanded to full screen you can turn the volume up or down within the player.
