During performances and events, accessed from the back, there are four places reserved specifically for theatre-goers in wheelchairs on the right-hand side.

Upper floors: Due to the absence of a lift, the theatre galleries and the reception room on the first floor are not accessible to all users.


The toilets are not accessible by people with disabilities (as indicated by law).

Additional facilities

There are no additional facilities, although the theatre's excellent acoustics make it an ideal concert venue. There are no services to facilitate knowledge of the venue by blind and visually impaired persons.
