Start Odessa Opera Theatre’s 211th Season

The number of seats available to the public has been reduced by half and the principle of “chessboard seating” will be in force. When entering the theatre members of the public will have their temperature taken using specially installed thermal imaging equipment, and upon entry and while in the foyers before the performance starts the principle of social distancing must be observed and individual means of protection must be used throughout audience attendance in the theatre building.
