Audio Described Performance: Sunday 9 June 2019, 2.30pm
This performance gives blind or visually impaired patrons the opportunity to attend The Barber of Seville, with trained audio describers broadcasting live commentary during the show, which patrons will hear through an earpiece.
A complimentary Touch Tour will also be held before the show where patrons can walk through the set, touch set pieces, feel costumes and handle key props. This will take place at 12pm, please meet in the ground floor foyer.
There are seats reserved for Audio Described patrons. Guide dogs are welcome, but please notify staff upon booking your ticket. To book your tickets for this performance, please call the Ticketmaster Groups Booking Line on 09 970 9745 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. A $5 service fee per transaction applies if booking over the phone or by email.
When booking, please ensure that you tell staff how many headsets you will need, if you plan on attending the complimentary Touch Tour before the show, and if you are bringing a guide dog. Tickets and headsets can be collected prior to the show.
New Zealand Opera prepares a text only programme for each vision-impaired patron, sent out approximately one week prior to the performance.
The Audio Described ticket allocations will be available until 5pm on the 4 June 2019, or until the allocation is exhausted.
