Since the first production in Opera Hedeland in 2002 only two nights have been cancelled due to adverse weather. In case of cancellation before the intermission, tickets are refunded at the venue where you bought them.

Please find detailed information about the guidelines concerning weather below – and note that 95% of our guests in our annual evaluations state, that they will visit again – a substantial endorsement!

Guidelines for situations in case of adverse weather

A decision on postponement or cancellation is at the very earliest taken at the beginning of the performance. We are in direct contact with the meteorologist on duty at the Danish Institute of Metheorology, who has accurate data via satellite, radar and local observations in the area. In case of rain our objective is to continue the performance.

However in a situation with heavy rain the begging of the performance may be postponed for up to 30 minutes, or paused for the same amount of time during the performance.

As we are insured against adverse weather situations on all our performances, we have no economic enhancement to refrain from cancelling. However – in understanding with our artists – we always aim at going through with the performance if the artistic value is not compromised. Our audiences most often bring rainclothes with them – just in case.

Cancellation before the start of the performance

If we cancel before the start of the performance, you may have your tickets refunded at the buying point (physically or via ticletmaster.dk). However we do not refund handling charges issued by ticketmaster.dk

Postponement

If the metheorologist on duty envisages fair weather conditions within 30 minutes, a postponement of up to 30 minutes is implemented. When reassuming the performance, the tickets are not refundable.

Temporary interruption

If showers disturb technical equipment, the performance may be stopped temporarily. If the performances are resumed, tickets are not refunded.

Cancellation after the start of the performance

In case of continuous and heavy rain meaning that the performance must be cancelled after the interruption, the following guidelines apply:

  • if the performance is cancelled before the intermission, tickets are refunded at the place, where they were purchased – except for the handling fee
  • if the performance is cancelled after the beginning of the intermission, tickets are not refunded
