This morning Procicat announced the changes to Phase 1 of the de-escalation and has allowed the maximum capacity of Hall 1, Pau Casals at L'Auditori de Barcelona to increase from 500 to 1,000 people, given the space meets the required conditions in terms of ventilation and is a safe space. As a result of this change, the main hall at L'Auditori de Barcelona will be able to maintain its programming with a capacity of almost 50%.
The measure will be applied from Monday, the day on which L'Auditori de Barcelona will be hosting the return of Jordi Savall to Catalonia’s stages after having recovered from Covid-19. It is a concert that had already sold out the allotted 500 seats and which will now be increasing its capacity by 500 people. Tickets will be available from this afternoon.
The increase in capacity will also allow more tickets to go on sale today from the extraordinary concerts that L'Auditori de Barcelona will be dedicating to La Marató de TV3 next weekend, on 19 and 20 December. This year La Marató is fundraising for the fight against Covid-19 and L'Auditori de Barcelona will be playing its part by setting up several points where the public who come to the Barcelona Symphony Orchestra concerts will be able to make donations.
In addition, the audience for the Sunday concert will include a hundred very special guests: cleaning, kitchen and maintenance staff from Hospital Clínic. These groups, a key part of the fight against the pandemic are among the most highly exposed and least visible, and this is our way of trying to show our appreciation for the essential work they are doing to combat the virus.
