> Jiří Kylián, November 12-19, 2020
The introduction of the Covid-19 curfew means that we have had to modify the programme and timing of the shows featuring the work of Czech choreographer Jiří Kylián. Performances will now start at 7 pm and end around 8.15 pm. The Opera Ballet will perform Wings of Wax and Gods and Dogs, but Bella Figura has been removed from the programme to allow the audience to be home by 9 pm.
These measures are subject to change, depending on the health situation and government recommendations to combat the spread of Covid-19.
Depending on developments, additional seats may be offered to the public, so we suggest that you sign up to the waiting list for any performances in which you are interested. That way, you will be among the first to be contacted if seats become available.
