Our Discovery Matinees welcome people who want to try opera out for the first time in a Relaxed environment, and those who love opera but find the normal theatre-going experience inaccessible.
What’s on offer
- Relaxed Performance – every Discovery Matinee will be adapted to suit people who find it difficult to follow the usual conventions of theatre behaviour, and those who prefer a more relaxed environment.
- Subsidised tickets – ticket prices are reduced for the Discovery Matinees with prices ranging from £10–50, with half price access tickets available for disabled people and a companion or carer.
- Audio-description – Discovery Matinees will be audio-described for blind and partially-sighted audiences, with additional commentary explaining the action on stage, including singers’ body language, expressions and movements. To book this service, please contact our Box Office on 0300 999 1000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Weekend afternoon performances – we hope a 2pm start to each Discovery Matinee will allow families to fall in love with opera together.
