Is there any way to see a sold-out performance?
Possibly yes. Due to the horseshoe shape of our Main Stage auditorium or because of the staging, some of the seats have a restricted view. These restricted view seats are only bookable by telephoning our Box Office, so the restrictions can be explained. Camera restricted view seats and listening seats may still be available. Please contact the Box Office on (+49 (0)30 47 99 74 00).What food and drink is available? Can I preorder for the break?

You will then find the duration (paired with the information whether there will be an intermission) on the homepage and in the service newsletter that will be sent to you three days before the performance you have booked - provided you have left an email address. Pieces that we have been showing for a longer period of time (the so-called repertoire) will also be published in the monthly and seasonal magazines with information about the duration of the performance.How long is the break?
Each break is 27 minutes long. Sometimes there are pieces that are so long that we offer two breaks. Even then each break is 27 minutes long.Are there wheelchair spaces available? If so, how do I get there with my wheelchair?
