Wearing an FFP2 mask is compulsory throughout the theatre. The mask may be removed at your own seat. Children up to the age of six are exempt from this requirement.

A medical face mask is permitted for children up to the age of 14.

We advise persons at increased risk of a severe course of SARS-CoV-2 infection who cannot wear an FFP2 mask of the increased risk of infection to themselves and others. We recommend that you refrain from attending the events.
