Can I use my cell phone?
Slippery slopes. Use your phone with moderation. Take a selfie, share a post but keep it minimal. Enjoy the show! Except for the Wolfgang App, we love that! But seriously. At least turn the sound off. wolfgangapp.nl

Why are theatre seats red?
For centuries, Italy was the center of opera performances and their opera houses were primarily red and gold. Throughout the rest of Europe they used the same colour palette.
More importantly, the red colour has to do with science: once the house lights are dimmed, the red colour will be the first to disappear from our sight. Because of that, the theatre becomes more darker.
