Can I print my tickets?
Purchasing a ticket implies acceptance of the terms and conditions; once a ticket has been purchased it cannot be exchanged or refunded, except where the show has been postponed (check what to do in the event of a postponement).
What should I do in the event of a postponement?
Should the organisers have to change a show’s scheduled venue or date because of a force majeure event, purchasers will be emailed the instructions they need to follow for exchanging their tickets. Should the new venue or day not be suitable for the spectator, or should a show be cancelled before it starts, the cost of the ticket will be refunded at the place it was purchased from, as from the next 48 working hours of the suspension date and up to one month after the date on which the show was meant to have taken place. Refunds are not available for shows cancelled more than 30 minutes after they have started.
How can I find out how long the show is?
You can check how long a show is from its file.
The duration of the shows is that stated by the company during the rehearsal period. Once this period has ended, the show's duration may, in some cases, differ from the one mentioned.
Can I see a show’s availability online?
Yes. If you select the show, day and performance, a map of the hall will be displayed showing you the available seats.
If I arrive late at the theatre, will I be able to access the theatre hall?
As a sign of respect for the artists and audience, anyone arriving late for a show will be unable to access their seat until the right moment during the performance, as indicated by the person in charge at the venue.
No access to theatre halls is allowed for shows that have no interval. Audience members who arrive late may not be able to access their seats in venues with numbered seats.
Will I be able to smoke, eat or drink within the Teatre Grec’s seating area?
You cannot smoke or bring food there but you can take a drink (so long as it is not in a glass container).
Can I keep my mobile with me during the show?
Mobiles must be switched off and should not emit any light. Putting them in silent mode is not sufficient. Noise and light from mobiles are a nuisance to both the company and the audience. Anyone failing to abide by this rule will be asked to leave the venue.
Can I take photographs or record the show on video?
No photographs or recordings are allowed during shows, except when the theatre very occasionally gives its consent. Anyone failing to abide by this rule will be asked to leave the venue.
Why can tickets be found for shows that have already sold out?
All events include a series of exceptional cases: tickets for the company that are allocated by contract, tickets intended for wheelchair users, spaces for technical controls etc. Some of these tickets may end up unused and put on sale.
Is there any transport available to me after a show at the Teatre Grec?
A bus service will come into operation soon after the end of some of the shows on at the Teatre Grec (chosen according to duration and availability of public transport), will run between the Teatre Grec to Plaça d’Espanya, Plaça de la Universitat and, finally, Plaça de Catalunya.
This service will be free for all Teatre Grec audience members.
