We at Zurich Opera House have eyes and ears for all your requests. So in keeping with our motto «opera for all», we would like to accommodate you, dear visitors.

And what these are, you will see this time in: «What you always wanted to know about the Opera House but never dared to ask», Episode 15 - Clear the stage?!
