The Arena di Verona is offering audience members alternate performances following the cancelation of Bizet’s “Carmen” on August 11.
The company noted that following inclement weather, it was forced to cancel in the middle of the performance.
The company said that “all spectators with a 8/11 ticket can return this weekend on 13 August 2022 for “Turandot” or 14 August 2022 for “Carmen,” subject to availability, by buying a ticket at the symbolic price of € 2.50 in the same seat category purchased for the 8/11 show.”
The company added that spectators will also “have the opportunity to purchase tickets with a 50 percent discount for the performances of 18, 19, 20 or 21 August 2022 (“Nabucco,” “Turandot,” “La Traviata,” “Aida”), subject to availability, in the same seat category purchased for the 8/11 show.”
The “Carmen” performance is the most recent show that was canceled in Verona. On July 29, the company was also forced to cancel a presentation of “Nabucco” and on July 28, the “Aida” performance was unable to finish.
The next “Carmen” performance at the Arena di Verona is set to take place on August 13 with Elina Garanča, Maria Teresa Leva, Brian Jagde, and Claudio Sgura.
