Looking forward to a new beginning

 

PUBLIC ACTIVITIES RESCHEDULING – May 23, 2020

The Teatro Regio di Parma will remain closed till June 14 2020, in compliance with the latest regulations, which extends all restrictions that prove necessary in order to contain the spread of the Covid-19 infection, including the suspension of live performances and shows scheduled till May 30 2020, as communicated in the last weeks.

Rescheduling of shows on the next Season proceeds relentlessly (please check the list of shows that have already been rescheduled). As for shows that are still to be rescheduled and for those that have been cancelled, regulations admit the possibility to ask for a refund in form of a voucher of the amount of the cost to be used within one year from its issue (Art. 88, Decree Law of 17.03.2020, n. 18 “Rimborso dei contratti di soggiorno e risoluzione dei contratti di acquisto di biglietti per spettacoli, musei e altri luoghi della cultura”).

Due to the coming into force of the Prime Minister’s Decree of May 17, 2020 and to the above mentioned Decree Law and further amendments, the Teatro Regio di Parma informs that the deadline for requesting refund vouchers, according to the procedures explained in detail below, has been extended to June 16, 2020.

Subscribers to the Opera, Concert and ParmaDanza seasons, as well as all spectators holding ticket for shows originally scheduled between February 24  and May 30, 2020 can thus submit their requests by June 16 2020.

For subscribers, refunds will be issued in the form of vouchers of the amount of lost instalments (the part of subscription that hasn’t been enjoyed), for single tickets holders, through a voucher of the value of the ticket.

Please note that tickets for shows that haven’t been actually rescheduled, on a precise date, are no longer valid.

Subscribers to ParmaDanza, only, will be able to use their subscription to enter the show Ezralov Dance – Open, originally scheduled for April 2 and rescheduled on December 2, 2020 (as an alternative to asking for a ticket refund).

The current tax legislation requires that subscriptions and tickets be kept till the conclusion of the refund operation, once the voucher is received.

Exception made for reprogrammed shows, once the deadline for the submission of refund requests has expired, no subscription, nor ticket will be any longer valid. Failure to request a refund voucher by the deadline will automatically lead to the participation in the #iorinuncioalrimborso campaign.

All Opera, Concert, ParmaDanza 2020 subscribers are entitled to participate to the Season 2021 pre-emption sales programme, whose methods will be disclosed officially during in the next months, in compliance with any new regulation and to all the restrictions imposed by the authorities in matter of public gathering.

In these troubling times for all of us, and for the Teatro Regio di Parma, we hope that subscribers and spectators will stay in touch and support us by joining the #iorinuncioalrimborso campaign, which has already involved other musical institutions in the world, by giving up the ticket refund of shows that have been suspended or cancelled. In this case, they will not have to do anything: a the end of deadline for requesting a refund, the value of their tickets or of their Season subscriptions instalments will be donated to the Teatro Regio di Parma. These are important and concrete acts of generosity, social commitment and solidarity aimed at supporting, in such a moment of difficulty, the survival of live Theater and Music. The Teatro Regio di Parma will not forget them and will be happy to publicly testify its gratitude towards all the subscribers and the spectators that have been involved.

For any information, the Teatro Regio Box Office, which is currently closed to the public and accessible only by email at the address biglietteria@teatroregioparma.it remains available. The Teatro Regio di Parma expresses its gratitude towards all the spectators, for the solidarity and affection that they have been expressing during these weeks, as well as to all those who’ve demonstrated to the Theatre their closeness and generosity.
