Several performances are available in audio description, live, this year, supported by MGEN 29 Accès culture. The first will be “Women” on Friday, September 23rd.

    In terms of prices, this is changing this year, especially with regard to the student passport, which has become more attractive. In fact, before he allowed access to an offer at a price of 10 euros, upon presentation of the student card. This season, students will only have to pay €5 per show if they attend at least three shows per season.
