When do the doors open before a performance?
The foyers of the respective venues open one hour before the start of the performance. Doors to the performance venues themselves generally open 30 minutes before the start of the performance.
What happens if I am late?
We recommend that you arrive at the respective venue approx. 30 minutes before the start of the performances. Despite this, should you arrive after the performance has started, please contact the staff service immediately, who will be able to assist you. We strive for the possibility of a late admittance, but there may be productions in which there is no late admittance because of excessive disturbances caused to the rest of the visitors.
Will I get a refund if a performance is canceled?
We do our utmost to ensure that all performances go ahead as planned. Nevertheless, should there be a cancellation, you will be refunded the full ticket price. Other refund claims on your part are excluded unless we are responsible for the reason for the cancellation of the event. The ticket must be redeemed within 3 months after the date of the canceled performance, and the original ticket returned. Thereafter, any refund claim expires.
May I take pictures and film performances?

In the case of official photography, TV and video recordings carried out by the Festival or third parties with the Festival's permission, visitors declare their consent to possible images of their person being recorded and used.
