Flexible seating plan and wearing masks

In the currently valid Senate ordinance, the number of participants permitted for events in closed rooms is limited to a maximum of 650 seats. Since the specified distance requirements of 1.5 metres must be observed at all times, the Hamburg State Opera cannot make use of this maximum number. A flexible seating plan, however, allows us to cater to the wishes of our visitors and thus allows up to 10 people to sit next to each other. Masks are also compulsory at the Hamburg State Opera. Mouth and nose covers must be worn on all walkways until the seat is occupied. Read more...
