Our Process

Our COVID safety policies have been developed in alignment with public health guidance, regulatory authorities, and industry standards, in close consultation with our peers and our people. These policies have sustained us through a period of tremendous programmatic success since commencing public performances in early December, despite the challenges of the Omicron wave, and we believe have earned us the confidence of our audiences, artists, and staff.

As the public health environment, government policies, and industry standards evolve, we are keen to make sure we communicate carefully and effectively with our stakeholders and the public. Thank you for being patient and understanding as we work together in good faith to respond to the ever evolving environment with consistency, integrity, and sustainability.
