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.
As part of the experience, we include:
A free introductory CD, sent out in advance of the performance.
A free Touch Tour of the set, costumes and props before the show.
An audio introduction 15 minutes before the start of the performance.
If you or someone you know is interested in booking for an audio-described performance, please make this clear when you contact the box office at your chosen theatre. Discounted tickets are available. Tickets for audio-described performances and Touch Tours must be booked at least two weeks in advance. Guide dogs are welcome.
Please note: tickets for audio-described performances at Theatre Royal Glasgow should be booked through their Groups Department at the number below.
