2020.10.10 Opera Aida Accessibility 2

1) How do I get to the theatre?
If you’re in Victoria, you needn’t worry. We’re right in the heart of the town so you may walk your way to the House. Public transport in Gozo does not run after the performance so private transport or taxi service would be recommended. Ask our helpline for more detailed info. If you’re in Malta, you most certainly have to travel by boat.

 

2) Transport Arrangements
For the benefit of those patrons residing on the main island of Malta, who intend crossing to Gozo for the opera and back, the Aurora Theatre always provides transport in Gozo at a nominal cost. This transport will be matched with the ferry service that leaves Malta at 6pm. Shuttle-Bus Service requests are accepted by email, phone or online forms.

3) Parking your vehicle on opera night
The Teatru tal-Opra Aurora's main entrance is situated in lower Republic Street on the left hand side (going uphill). Ample free and unlimited parking is available at the Victoria’s central Car Park, only a 100m distance from the theatre premises’ rear entrance. The parking that is usually available outside the main entrance will be restricted on opera night. The main entrance is recommended for mobility-impaired patrons.


4) Elevator and Accessibility
Wheelchair users and mobility-impaired patrons may use the passenger elevator. Those who require some time and ease to climb a flight of steps are requested to call at the theatre from the main entrance, 15 minutes prior to the opening of the gates. Patrons are kindly asked to inform the theatre personnel beforehand so that arrangements can be made and special care taken.

Since the theatre possesses only 1 passenger elevator, it is operated by theatre personnel during the final 45 minutes prior to the start of the opera. Priority is given to elderly, mobility-impaired persons and anyone who requests such a service. Priority Access Requests are accepted by email, phone or online forms.
