Directions to the Theater

Nashville Opera performs at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center (TPAC).  Located at 505 Deaderick Street in downtown Nashville, TPAC sits between Fifth and Sixth Avenues.  From I-40, take Exit 209A to Broadway and proceed east toward downtown.  Turn left on Fifth Avenue, then left onto Deaderick Street.  TPAC is on the left.

From I-65, exit onto James Robertson Parkway and proceed west across the Cumberland River.  Turn left on Third Avenue and then right onto Deaderick.  TPAC is on the left after you cross Fifth Avenue.  It is a good idea to arrive downtown early.

Opera Parking

Nashville Opera recommends City Center Garage on Union Street.  The cost is $5, and attendants accept payment at the gate.  Our 3- & 4-show ticket-holders receive a complimentary parking pass which is valid for all performances of their season ticket package.  Spaces are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis, so plan to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to curtain.

Impresario Council Members receive free valet parking.
