Underholdningshungrende danes can finally once again put themselves in the chairs around on the country's theatres, which, having been closed since 7. march now, can open the doors.
But there will be quite a different experience than the audience is used to.
According to the guidelines, which the ministry of Culture has just released, there must be a maximum of 500 persons present for the performances, both indoor and outdoor.
There must also be a distance between the audiences, which is guaranteed to keep every seat empty or by providing a meters distance between the chairs.
For The New Theatre in Copenhagen, which has a capacity of 1000 guests, this means the guidelines according to director Niels-Bo Valbro, that it immediately can't pay off financially for them to open.
- It will not be able to. But I gotta just say that The New Theatre apart from the performance, which was interrupted, after all, not have any performance, which is scheduled before the middle of september. So we must just hope that there will be eased, so the number is up, he says to Ekstra Bladet.
the Piece 'Dance of the Vampires' had premiere 30. January and should have the game up to 9. april.

Because The New Theater, often doing expensive setups with many contributing, it is not enough to be able to sell 500 tickets, " explains Niels-Bo Valbro.
And he is also unsure whether they can get up to 500 people with all of the other guidelines must also be followed. As he says, 'lurks the devil is often in the detail'.
The rules are like all other notices, regulations and instructions in connection with coronakrisen made under great time pressure. Therefore, it is necessary to paint with a broad brush, and the ability to think in individual terms check is not present.
- Our theatre has five floors, and each floor is in fact a self-contained cell, but the limitations for us are the same as for the theatres the entire audience sitting in one room, he says.
Therefore he can not say with certainty, about the performance, which was interrupted by coronanedlukningen, will be resumed.
- It can not be excluded, that we are going to play performances for the permitted 500. It depends on whether we can get compensation for the difference (the tickets can not be sold, red.), he says.
Yet keeps Niels-Bo Valbro fixed in the scheduled setup of the musical of 'Oliver Twist', which is set to premiere 15. september, and as it was planned a long time before coronakrisen.
- We look forward to seeing those who have purchased a ticket, even though it is difficult with the uncertainty. We'd like to do theatre, and then it's too bad that there are gaping empty right at the moment, though it of course is understandable under the circumstances, he says.
