We kindly recommend you to arrive at the theatre on time. Only in this way you will be able to check in your belongings at the cloakroom, leaf through your theatre programme, find your seat and catch-up with your friends. Do not forget that the other visitors intend to do exactly the same, so please try to arrive at least 20 minutes before the scheduled performance time.

Theatre Dress Code

Our dress code is primarily a way to express our respect to performers, other visitors and ourselves. In former times, a formal suit and tie for gentlemen and a smart dress for ladies were required, when visiting theatre, opera and ballet performances or concerts. In present times, the rules are not so strict any more, however, we would advise you against wearing casual or sporting clothes in the theatre.


The cloakrooms are located in the Lower Lobby and on the Dress Circle level.

Mobile Phones and Watches

We kindly ask you to allow yourselves and other visitors to experience the performance in an undisturbed manner. Mobile phones and hand watches, making annoying sounds, should be left at home or turned off before the beginning of the performance.

Bringing in outside food and beverages

Outside food and beverages are not permitted in the theatre.
