Dear audience,

We regret to announce the cancellation of our major productions scheduled for the end of December 2020 due to the Swiss Federal Council’s decisions on October 28, 2020 related to the fight against the spread of the Covid-19 virus. Indeed, the new measures restricting cultural events to an audience of 50 people do not allow us to present several of our productions in a suitable manner and we are very sorry about this.

Subscribers and ticket holders for cancelled events will be directly contacted by the GTG ticket office very shortly.

The Grand Théâtre de Genève is forced to cancel the performances of its opera L’Affaire Makropoulos as of its performance on 30.10.2020, as well as the ballet Hors Cadre and the opera Candide planned for the festive season.
