Tickets / Seating & Other information

 Reductions on Tickets 

Wheelchair users with written proof of 50% disability: room for wheelchairs at both ends of the first two rows of the stalls cost 50% of the normal ticket price - the seat next to it, for the person who is accompanying the wheelchair user, is also half price. In the Bockenheimer Depot the best possible positions will be allocated, but these will vary from production to production, depending upon the size and shape of the stage.

These seats cannot be booked online - this is to ensure that the spaces earmarked for wheelchair users and the seat for the person accompanying them are not taken by people not entitled to use them. Tickets can only be booked by telephone (+49(0)69) 212 49494 or from the advance and evening box offices.

School children and students (under the age of 30) are entitled to a 50% reduction on the price of their tickets (opening night not included). This also applies to tickets being purchased in advance and online in our webshop. You may be asked to provide proof of your age when you enter the theatre, if you are older than 30 you will have to pay the full price...

Students (under 30, with proof of their age) can buy tickets from the evening box office that are still unsold before the performance begins for €15.
