Arena di Verona

Frequently Asked Questions

Dear spectator,

The current decree for the containment of the pandemic enables the Arena (in a white zone) to host a full capacity audience. At present, a FFP2 face mask and a “reinforced” Green Pass are compulsory for access to the shows. 

Since provisions are continually evolving, we suggest you consult this section periodically for any updates and to check what provisions are effective slightly before the date of the event for which you have purchased tickets.

Replies to the most frequent questions follow: we hope they help to solve any doubts you have.

I have a voucher issued following the cancellation of the 2020 Festival due to Covid. When is it valid till?

The vouchers have a validity of 36 months from the date of issue (the date indicated on the document in your possession will be considered valid).

Vouchers can be used as a form of total or partial payment for tickets regarding the shows scheduled for the 2022 Arena Opera Festival 2022 on the site  


What happens to my voucher once it expires?

At the end of the 36 months, although not foreseen by law, Fondazione Arena di Verona has decided to reimburse any vouchers not yet used.


I purchased a ticket on the GeTicket website, what happens now with the new ticket sales service by TicketOne?

Your seats are confirmed. In the coming weeks, we shall send you the new ticket that you can used to attend the show. 


Can I cancel or modify my ticket?

I would like to purchase a ticket but am worried about the possible developments of the pandemic. What will happen if I’m unable to reach Verona next summer due to restrictions imposed by the authorities?

We are not normally able to reimburse tickets already purchased.

Nevertheless, we realize that the continuation of the emergency could cause objective drawbacks to reaching Verona. In these cases, spectators already holding tickets can decide to change the date or move their tickets to the 2023 Festival at a symbolic price.

The following are considered as objective hindrances:

- Proven health reasons due to the Covid-19 emergency

- Prohibition of travel to Italy was established by the country of departure

- Prohibition of landing in Italy

- Lack of flights for reaching Verona easily

- Quarantine on returning to the country of origin

If these conditions still persist 21 days prior to the date shown on your ticket, they give the right to the facilitations foreseen by the Fondazione. Please write to


What happens in the event of bad weather?

Should weather conditions prevent a performance from being staged as scheduled, Fondazione Arena di Verona may postpone the beginning by up to 150 minutes. In the event of a performance being stopped after it has begun, spectators will have no right to a refund of the ticket price. Should the opera be definitively stopped before the end of Act 1, you have a right to purchase a ticket, of the same category as the original ticket, with a discount of approximately 50% on the full price for another performance of the current Festival or the following year’s Festival.
