General information

The Main Stage auditorium has almost 1 300 seats. This means that you, with the maximum number of audience members allowed, are ensured be able to maintain a safe distance from other visitors. With a maximum of 300 audience members, every second row of seats will remain empty, and there will be two empty seats on either side of you or your group. For everyone’s safety, we remind you that it is forbidden to use these empty seats.

Markings, signs and ushers will help everyone maintain the prescribed distance. Please follow all instructions carefully. Ushers will be present, at a safe distance, to help you follow the rules. You can also consult the ushers if you have any questions or need more information.

When you arrive

Ushers will be present right from the entrance to help you to keep distance from other groups.

The ushers will check your ticket from a safe distance. If there is any information that applies specifically to your seat, the ushers will let you know. For instance, they might need to tell you what part of the row your seat is in (centre or end of row).

Clear instructions are displayed by the cloakrooms to ensure a steady flow and prevent congestion.

The doors to the auditorium open 30 minutes before the performance.

During the intermission

If you were unable to pre-book your refreshments, you can order them directly over the counter in our café.

Please follow the ushers’ instructions carefully. They will guide you to the right place and keep visitors moving steadily through the foyer.

If you have items in the cloakroom, we strongly recommend that only one person per tag goes to pick them up.

We also remind you:

  • Stay at home if you are experiencing symptoms and for at least two days after symptoms have passed.
  • Use the hand-sanitiser stations in the foyer.
  • Stay distanced from each other and from other groups.

Temporarily adjusted re-booking terms due to covid-19

We have temporarily eased our rebooking terms, due to our request that you remain at home if you have even minor symptoms of illness, and to remain home for two days after the symptoms have cleared. This means that up to 1 hour before the performance, you may rebook your ticket to another performance for SEK 30 per ticket.
