our customers we are pleased to announce

that the stalls layout has now been modified

to accommodate more aisle seats and a larger

space for wheelchair users. The new layout

will be implemented for any new shows that

now go on sale so please bear with us as this

process will be phased due to the majority

of shows already being on sale with the old

layout. Please refer to Page 13 for the new

design.

music by one of the 19th century’s best composers, Adolphe Adam, and choreography by the

late Nicholas Beriosoff, VFB’s traditional staging of this 1841 masterpiece moves from the
