This emergency will probably make the show industry very fragile. The situation keeps us physically far from our spectators and economically exposes us with regards to the future, as culture is unfortunately considered marginal.
Even now our efforts are geared towards facing difficulties: the shows are cancelled, we are applying exceptional measures for the workers and we are trying to monitor the European situation in order to be able to confirm the future schedule.
We are however pleased with the solidarity we have encountered: some of you are spontaneously waiving your request for a refund to help us in this difficult moment. We really thank these spectators and those of you who will choose to do the same.
The amount that will not be turned into a voucher will be considered a donation. We thank in advance those of you who will decide to renounce your voucher request. The voucher request instructions are below:
