Infection control and your visit to the theatre

Finally, visiting the National Theatre is once again possible. In accordance with government guidelines, we have developed a set of infection control measures, ensuring a pleasant and safe theatre experience for everyone.

Before your visit

We recommend buying your tickets online on nationaltheatret.no. In order to meet the government’s demands regarding contact tracing, you will be asked to provide the contact details of everyone you are buying tickets for.

Upon purchase, you will receive the information you need regarding infection control measures and rules, via both email and sms, ensuring you are well prepared for your visit.

At this point we can only seat 50 audience members at once in our auditoriums. Due to the strictly limited number of tickets per show, there will sadly be no reservations.

What do I do if I feel ill?

If you have been in contact with anyone who is infected, are currently quarantined, are feeling ill, or are showing symptoms of disease, it is important that you stay at home. Please get in touch with the box office via salg@nationaltheatret.no to change or refund your booking.

Where do I show up before showtime at Amfiscenen?

Please show up in the vestibule directly inside the main entrance of the National Theatre. There is plenty of room there, allowing people to keep a distance of 1 meter from everyone outside your group. Our experienced ushers will usher the audience inside in groups, ensuring that all infection control measures are being taken.

Due to the added time this takes, we ask the audience to show up approx. 30 minutes before showtime.

Where do I show up before showtime at the Torshov Theatre?  

For Torshov Theatre shows, please show up at street level outside the main entrance. There is plenty of room there to ensure people can keep a distance of 1 meter from everyone outside their group. Our experienced ushers will usher the audience inside in groups, ensuring that all infection control measures are being taken.

Due to the added time this takes, we ask the audience to show up approx. 30 minutes before showtime.

Handwashing and hygiene

Please remember to wash or disinfect your hands before showtime. Disinfectant hand soap will be available in all our toilets, and in a number of other locations where the audience may pass.

Auditoriums, toilets, and audience areas are cleaned regularly and thoroughly.

Will there be food and drink service?

As we are not defined as a food service venue, we are sadly unavailable to currently sell drinks or snacks over the counter.

How do I enter the auditorium?

As we have to ensure plenty of room – minimum one meter – between each audience member, an usher will show you to your seat. You should set aside more time than usual for entering the auditorium and show up approx. 30 minutes before showtime.

May I sit with my group?

If you are attending with your family or others that you are usually in close contact with, you may naturally sit together during the show.

May I use the toilet during the show? 

You may naturally use our toilets before, during, and after the show, but please try and keep your distance to other audience members. Our toilets are cleaned thoroughly and regularly, in accordance with all infection control regulations.

What happens after the show?

After the show ends, we ask you to remain seated until an usher tells you it is your turn to leave the auditorium. This way, everyone will be able to maintain a safe distance while leaving.
