Hygiene rules

What do you have to observe when visiting a performance?

In order to make it possible to visit a performance, the following hygiene rules currently apply:

  • We recommend wearing an FFP2 mask or a standard medical mask when visiting a performance.
  • Please maintain a distance of 1.5 m.
  • Visitors displaying symptoms of a possible Covid-19 infection will be refused admission.
  • There is only limited catering service offered.

Performances cancelled

Tickets already purchased for performances cancelled by the Semperoper (due to the Covid-19 pandemic or for scheduling reasons) will be refunded. A ticket return form is available for this purpose.
