In order to further reduce the risk of infection with the Corona virus, the Infection Protection Act of May 12th, 2020 by the Saxon State Ministry for Social Affairs and Social Cohesion made access to theaters and musical theaters dependent on hygiene concepts tailored to each institution, which must be approved by the responsible local authority. As a result of this general decision, the officially planned performances in the venues of the Oper Leipzig cannot take place until the end of October 2020.

There will be performances on the weekends in the event series »Imagination ahead!« on stage in the Westbad until July 12th 2020 . For this purpose, a hygiene concept was specially developed, offering the public the greatest possible protection against infection with the Corona virus. In a small cast, a performance cannot run over an hour. The available spaces for the public were reduced accordingly in order to comply with the social distancing regulations. Tickets can only be ordered by telephone via ticket hotline +49 (0) 341 - 12 61 261.

An alternative schedule for the Opera House and Westbad in September and October, which meets the hygiene requirements, is currently being planned.
