I would like to thank everyone for helping us with the recent trial of opening online booking at 8am. I very much appreciate that the change may not have suited everyone, however judging from the level and speed of booking it worked for most. Following this trial, we plan to do the same for general booking, which opens on 31 March. Once we are certain that the system is fully stabilized we would like to continue with the early booking for the Autumn Season. We will confirm the exact time in April.
The Season Guide and autumn magazine have now gone to print, so the time of booking is not included in their pages. However, once the booking time is confirmed you will be able to see it on our website, under the Friends’ page, and we will also include this important information in our enews. We also have not been able to include the casting for ballet performances. Again, the information will be available on our website ahead of autumn booking for all levels of support.
The Summer Season is full of wonderful productions, and it is not too late to purchase tickets for Guillaume Tell, Falstaff, Don Giovanni and others. If you would like to bring younger members of your family to a show, I would recommend the Welsh National Opera production of Peter Pan, taking place on 24 and 25 July. It will be a magical adventure for everyone aged eight and above.
We’re delighted to reveal that we have been granted planning permission for our Open Up project. You can find out more and explore some initial drawings by architects Stanton Williams on our website. We will be keeping our Friends up to date with plans for the work in the coming months.
We are very grateful for your support, and please do not hesitate to contact the Friends’ team if you have any questions or comments.
