As we return to live opera, we're very happy to be able to provide audio description at each of our touring venues during selected performances of The Gondoliers this Autumn.
Mention opera and most people think of singing and music - but this is only part of the overall experience. What about scenery, costumes, lighting, direction and choreography? Audio-description helps visually-impaired patrons enjoy the opera experience with a live commentary that describes the action on stage without compromising the music.
If you book an audio-described ticket for The Gondoliers, you will have access to live commentary throughout the show via a discreet headset. Before the performance, you will also be able to listen to a specially-created audio introduction to the production, including details of the set, costumes and props.
You can book audio described tickets for the relevant performances via the venue box offices. When you arrive at your chosen performance please make yourself known to a member of the Front of House team and they will provide you with your audio description headset. Guide dogs are welcome at all of our venues.
