We recommend that you arrive at least 30 minutes before the performance begins. The performance always starts at the time indicated on the ticket and the website. Latecomers will have to wait until the intermission to be admitted into the auditorium.
The doors into the theatre building will be closed 15 minutes after the start of the performance.
