Bayreuth Baroque Opera Festival

Hygiene

We are happy to play for you! In order to make this work well, we strictly follow the instructions of the authorities. All performances will take place under strict protection and hygiene measures to further contribute to the containment of the corona virus infection.

 

General information

 

  • Identification & personal data – In order to be able to ensure the tracing of the chain of infection in case of suspicion, we as organisers are obliged to keep a list of participants. For this reason, we must ask you to leave your name, address and telephone number at the box office when buying tickets. If you buy tickets for several people, their personal data must also be kept ready and provided on request. On the evening of the event itself, all our visitors are obliged to carry their ID and to present it at the box office on request and when buying tickets. We keep the lists of participants in accordance with Art. 5 DSGVO and in compliance with data protection principles, and delete them after the time specified by the authorities.
  • Mouth and nose cover – It is compulsory to wear a mouth and nose cover within the Opera House and churches. You may remove the mouth-nose cover from your seats during the performance, as the distance regulations are observed by blocking off the rows and seats.
  • Observance of the general rules of hygiene – Please respect the sneezing and coughing label with consideration for other visitors and staff, keep sufficient distance from other people around you (at least 1.50 metres), and of course: don’t forget to wash your hands! On site, signs and announcements remind visitors of the hygiene rules.
  • Cloakroom – Due to the current regulations we are unfortunately unable to offer a cloakroom service. However, you will have the opportunity to leave your cloakroom on the free seats next to you if you wish.
  • Symptoms – You are obliged to stay away from the event if you have had contact with people affected by Covid-19 or have infected yourself with the virus in the past 14 days. People with obvious cold symptoms will not be admitted to the event. Please refrain from coming if you have any symptoms. To be on the safe side, we may check your body temperature using a forehead thermometer.

  • Churches – 100 – 170 seats are available in the churches.
  • Free choice of seats – Between the rows, one row is always completely free, so that the distance to the visitors in the rows behind is also maintained. When entering the church, the following applies: Slide through and always leave 2 seats free for the respective neighbour who is not part of your household. The evening staff will help you fill up the rows and assign your seat.
