WNO@WMC 11/12 Performance Times & Dates

Photo

With public booking for WNO @ WMC 11/12 opening at the end of this month (25th of March) it's been drawn to my attention by reader Vecchio John that specific times and dates for performances aren't available online for those of you wishing to plan your bookings. So having consulted with my guru I thought it best to rectify the situation and take the morning off from Split Ends 101.

Although performances tend to take place during the evening there are Sunday matinee performances of Don Giovanni, Beatrice & Benedict and La bohème. It goes without saying that Tristan und Isolde has a start time of 5pm for all performances.

  1. Well I got my Tristan tickets this morning. If anything the WMC on line is even more "hair" raising than the ROH, as there are long periods when nothing seems to be happening as the pages reload, even with super fast broadband.
    Scary really that I am booking for May 2012.
    Thanks for posting the dates as otherwise I may have missed out.

  2. You're welcome - I had a quick poke myself to see how ticket sales were going and had the same problem myself. Luckily there's no waiting room to be thrown out of!

    I know what you mean about booking ahead – I don't mind booking a year in advance for WNO as it's on my doorstep but when I book ahead for London dates, especially the Southbank / Barbican, I'm booking more in hope that I can make it rather than knowing I will make it.
