Timing your Aida visit

2020.10.10 Opera Aida Timing 2

1) How long is Aida?
Act 1 – 40 minutes
Act 2 – 45 minutes
Acts 3 and 4 – 65 minutes

2) How many breaks will there be?
In all likelihood there will be one short break between Acts 1 and 2, and one longer break between Acts 2 and 3. There would only be a short pause between Acts 3 and 4. However, this will be defined closer to date.

3) What if I come late?

Prudence is key in this case. Late comers holding stalls tickets will have to wait at the buffer-door until the ushers show them the way to their places at the most appropriate time, which could be as late as the first interval. Latecomers holding box tickets may enter upon their arrival, given they take extreme care not to interrupt and create discomfort to other patrons and performing artistes.
