With the PEGASUS children's and youth program, we would like to warmly welcome our young and youngest guests to the Alte Oper. It includes participatory concerts, encounters with classical and contemporary works, workshops for creative exploration of music, and much more - for children and young people of all ages.

The continuous offer for babies, toddlers, elementary school children and teenagers wants to address families as well as crèche or kindergarten groups or school classes and in this way provide diverse access to the world of classical and contemporary music.

We would like to invite young people to experience music - with all their senses!

Our hygiene concept: PEGASUS


An extensive PEGASUS season is planned - the Alte Oper is ready to once again welcome as many children and young people as possible with their families, their daycare groups or school classes to the concert. Of course, we are keeping an eye on the current development of the pandemic and are prepared for concert operations even under special conditions. All measures are carried out in close coordination with the health authorities. Your health and that of the young visitors is always our top priority!

Well guided
A fixed route guidance system leads without collisions with plenty of space from the entrance to the seating area - and out again. Please allow for a small time buffer when arriving, as admission may take a little longer than usual.

Inside the building, all visitors over the age of six are (currently) required to wear medical mouth and nose protection. You will find sufficient dispensers with disinfectant distributed throughout the house.

Safe is safe: 2G+ as well as mask and distance obligation as of December 5
For adults and accompanying children, proof of full vaccination protection (official vaccination certificate with stamp of second vaccination, minimum 14 days old or digital certificate in the Corona Warning app, CovPass app) or proof of recovery after a maximum of 6 months past infection and additionally a current negative antigen test is required for concert attendance. Please note: a self-test will not be accepted. This proof must be checked against your ID card upon concert admission. Please note that in the interest of our concertgoers, admission to the house cannot be granted without the appropriate proof. For persons who cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons and can prove this with a medical certificate, no proof of vaccination or convalescence is required, but a daily antigen rapid test ("citizen test") is required. The Alte Oper Frankfurt is thus complying with official requirements. Concert visitors cannot be tested shortly before the start of the event at the Alte Oper.

A rapid antigen test is sufficient, such as the so-called "citizen test" that can be obtained free of charge from pharmacies or private test centers (available here, among other places). This rapid antigen test ("citizen test") must not be older than 24 hours. A PCR test is not necessary, but is also accepted. The test must have been taken no more than 48 hours before the start of the event.

Please note: From 16 December onwards, visitors who have already received a third vaccination will no longer be required to take the test.

For students under 18 years of age, the test booklet is also accepted as negative proof, even beyond a 24-hour period, provided that the test booklet is regularly updated as part of participation in the mandatory school protection concept. In the case of pupils from other federal states in which there is no corresponding test booklet, the pupil's ID card is sufficient, as testing concepts exist in all states. Due to an explicit recommendation of the public health department, the test booklet is not valid during school holidays; therefore, during the holidays including the closing weekend, proof of a negative coronavirus test (rapid antigen test, not older than 24 h) is also required for pupils under 18 years of age.
Children under the age of 6 and children who do not yet attend school do not need negative proof, as before.

If you or your child show any signs of illness, please refrain from attending the event.

In addition to this valid 2G-Plus regulation, due to the updated coronavirus protection regulation of the Hessian state government, a mask and distance obligation applies from Sunday, 05 December. This means the placement will be in a checkerboard pattern (hall occupancy with spacing) and the obligation to wear a medical mouth-nose protection (FFP2 or surgery mask) throughout the house applies also during the event. This also applies to children over the age of six. Children under the age of six are not required to wear a mask.

Due to the short-notice nature of the changed official requirements, there will unfortunately be changes and adjustments to the Alte Oper Frankfurt's own program at short notice. Please check this website for the latest information on possible changes.

Buy tickets without any risk
If dates of the PEGASUS program, which are organized by the Alte Oper itself, have to be cancelled due to the pandemic, we will easily refund the ticket price including advance booking and system fees. The process is unbureaucratic and can be completed using a form on our website or at the advance booking offices. As far as the offers of our cooperation partners are concerned, please contact the respective concert organizer directly in case of concert cancellations.

What is valid today, ...
... may look completely different tomorrow! The decisive factors are the infection situation at the time of the concert and the official regulations valid at that time. We recommend that you inform yourself about current changes affecting our concert operations and procedures in the daily media or on our website at short notice before attending the concert. If you subscribe to our newsletter, we can always keep you directly up to date!
