Instructions to dealing with Covid-19

Until further notice, the following hygiene rules to contain the spread of Covid-19 will apply to all performances of the main and fringe programmes:

The following regulations are for your personal protection; as preventative measures for other audience members in the context of attending the theatre, it is required that you abide by them. They are provided here for your advance information.

1. The prerequisite for purchasing your admissions ticket is that you provide your first and last name as well as your telephone number for the purpose of tracing any chains of infection. This required personal data will be erased three weeks after the performance. If you do not provide the data mentioned here, you will not be able to purchase a ticket.

2. When entering and leaving a venue, and until arriving at or leaving a seat, wearing an oronasal mask (covering nose and mouth) is required. It can be taken off during the performance.

3. Audience members who can’t wear an oronasal mask for health reasons, and can prove this with a medical certificate, are requested to wear a face visor. If the face visor is not in use, no entrance will be granted to any of the venues’ foyers or audience areas.

4. The standard social distancing rule of 1.5 meters to other people applies.

5. The seats are spaced in accordance with the proscribed regulations.

6. The venues will open one hour before the begin of the performances. Please arrive punctually, since entering the venue might take longer than usual.

7. Visitors will only be allowed into the venues if they do not have symptoms indicative of Covid-19. In accordance with the information from the Robert Koch-Institut, these are: fever, coughing, sneezing, sore throat, headaches and body aches, stomach or intestinal disorders, a loss of the sense of smell or taste.

8. If the festival is cancelled due to new regulations from the federal government, the Free State of Saxony and/or the City of Leipzig, we will refund the full price of your admission ticket.

9. Every venue has individual Covid-19 rules, which our festival will adhere to; this includes any updates. Please inform yourself at their websites before attending.

We are glad to be available for additional information. In case you have any questions, please contact our Head of Administration, Jana Wetzlich: telephone +49-(0)341-980 02 84.
