COVID-19 INFORMATION

Important cancellation and postponement information

As we continue to navigate through the ever-changing circumstances related to COVID-19, you can find current show status details and more information on this page.

Individuals holding tickets to postponed or rescheduled performances should maintain their current tickets. When events are rescheduled, tickets for the original date will be honored. DMPA’s Ticket Office will be in touch with Ticket Holders (who purchased directly from DMPA) as details become available with further information.

Since the onset of the crisis, we have been working diligently behind the scenes to reschedule as many shows in our 2019-20 season as possible, as well as some of the productions in our 2020-21 season. However, the booking of touring productions across the country is a highly involved operation during normal times. As you can imagine, this is now even more difficult with virtually all the theaters in the U.S. having to reschedule touring shows as well. Therefore, it is possible that further date changes may occur. We will communicate changes to you promptly as they occur.

If an event is cancelled (rather than postponed) an automatic credit for the total amount purchased will be made in the form of the original payment and you will be notified via email. Our Ticket Office operations will be limited to online communications and phone calls during this time and will not be conducting in-person transactions.

The performance list on this page will be updated regularly and will be the most up to date listing of each performance's status.

While we as a global society face this unknown crisis, it is important to remember the power of the arts to connect us as a community. Thanks to our loyal Donors and audiences, DMPA will be here to support our community when this crisis subsides.

AIDA will no longer be touring next season in North America. This includes the 2020-2021 Willis Broadway Series engagement scheduled for June 8-13, 2021.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I find the status of an upcoming performance?

The most up to date listing of performances that have been postponed/cancelled can be found on this page.

How will I find out if/when a performance is rescheduled?

Once the status of a show has been determined, we will contact Ticket Holders with the new information via email. This page will also be updated to reflect new information as it becomes available.

What if I cannot attend a rescheduled performance?

In the event that a rescheduled performance date or time does not work for you, a full refund value of the tickets will be offered. In the case of cancellations, the ticket value and services fees are refunded.

Please note: refunds for select performances may only be available for a specific period of time.

What if I purchased tickets to a cancelled performance with cash or check?

If you purchased tickets to a canceled performance with a cash or check, a check will be mailed to the address associated with your account.

When do you anticipate performances resuming?

The need to protect our audiences, staff, artists, and the most vulnerable in our community is the sole focus of DMPA at this time. We will continue to monitor the crisis and will resume operations when government agencies indicate it is safe to do so.
