Returning to in-person concerts over the last year has been both an honor and responsibility. As the global pandemic evolves, our response will continue to adapt. The health and safety of our audience, employees, and artists remains our highest priority. Out of concern for those in our community who are still vulnerable, some COVID-19 protocols will stay in place for the coming season. You can always visit BEMF.org/safety to review our current safety policies.
See below for more information on our Safety Protocols and how they will work. We are also asking all ticket buyers to read and agree to the Patron Terms & Conditions below.
By purchasing tickets, you agree to all Terms & Conditions implemented by BEMF. When attending an In-Person BEMF performance, ALL attendees must certify to the following: 1.) That you are fully vaccinated and will be prepared to show proof of your vaccination when you arrive at the venue. 2.) That you will wear a well-fitted mask covering your nose and mouth at all times at the concert venue.
All of our programs will be available for virtual viewing starting about one to two weeks after the performance on our secure, online platform. Virtual Tickets will be included FREE with all in-person tickets or can purchased on their own.
For all venues, we will require all patrons, as well as BEMF staff and artists, to provide proof that they are fully vaccinated. You may use either paper or electronic documentations. If you are not fully vaccinated, we would urge you to consider virtual ticket options available for all performances.
All patrons and BEMF Staff are required to wear a well-fitted mask at ALL times at the concert venue. Not all musicians may be masked during the performance, but will maintain at least a 6-foot distance from the audience.
Tickets will be sold at each concert venue—subject to availability. Print-at-home and mobile ticket options will be made available, including for subscribers. We will no longer maintain socially distanced seating and ticket buyers can select their seats when ordering at BEMF.org.
To streamline the concert experience, all concert programs will be presented without intermission and are expected to run about 90 minutes. The Chamber Opera Series production will include an intermission and will run about 95 minutes.
In lieu of Pre-Concert Talks at the venue, we will present online Pre-Concert Videos with informative discussions featuring scholars and artists the week before each program—FREE to watch on YouTube or at BEMF.org.
