Following the announcement that Manchester is in Tier 3 from Wednesday 2 December, when the national lockdown was lifted, Manchester Opera House and Qdos Entertainment have announced that the opening of Sleeping Beauty will be delayed and will now begin on 24th December 2020 and run until 10th January 2021.
Sheena Wrigley, Theatre Director of Manchester Palace & Opera House said: “Given the downward trend of the virus in the City, and the community’s campaign for the reduction of the Tier level at the next review, we continue to be hopeful that we can stage the show this Christmas, opening a little later than planned on 24 December.
We thank all of our customers for their patience at this time as we work to get affected bookings rescheduled, and are also grateful The National Lottery for their continued support to enable the rescheduled performances to go ahead.”
The Ambassador Theatre Group recognise the NHS for their hard work through this difficult year and will now be offering them free tickets to the performance on Friday 8 January at 7pm. All original ballot entries remain valid, and winners will be contacted the week commencing 7 December 2020.
The relaxed performance of Sleeping Beauty which has been specially adapted to allow those with autism, sensory and communication disorders, learning difficulties or anyone who would benefit from a more informal setting to enjoy the performance, comfortably, will now take place on 6th January at 1pm.
