Special instructions for your visit to the theater

For the 2021/2022 theater season, attendance from the age of 16 is only permitted for persons with a valid Covid certificate. When entering the theater La Poste, a valid Covid certificate and a matching identification document with photo (e.g. passport, identity card) must be presented.

With this measure, the previous protective measures such as capacity restriction, mask obligation or the prohibition to consume standing are no longer applicable. You can therefore enjoy your visit to the theater before, during and after the performance without any restrictions.
