Discounts for children and families

People with a disability are very welcome here, and also receive discounts on our ticket prices. Places for wheelchair users are therefore provided free of charge in our venues. Their companions also receive a 50 per cent discount. All requirements and further discounts for disabled people are explained here. Please also note our instructions for a barrier-free visit. 
Seats for companions with a 50% discount are provided; admission is free for wheelchair users.
The places for wheelchair users are in row 19 in the stalls. There are two places on the right and two on the left. Companions sit in the stalls, row 19 (seats 763 and 762) and row 20 (seats 791 and 792).
Two of the four places are reserved for advance written orders. Two places are reserved for sale at the desk and by phone. Sales begin one week before regular desk sales begin. Please note our advance sales periods for this.
