Scottish Opera is committed to bringing the widest possible range of opera, performed to the highest possible standards, to the maximum audience throughout Scotland.

Access statement

The majority of venues that we visit are wheelchair accessible and other services may be provided (check individual venue information for details).

We provide a range of services for Visually Impaired Patrons where possible, including audio-described performances and touch tours. We provide information about our operas on Audio CD, in large print, and in Braille. Assistance dogs are welcome to all our performances.

As part of our audio description experience, we include a free CD, sent out in advance of the performance, which gives an excellent introduction to the production, a free Touch Tour of the set, costumes and props before the show, and an audio introduction 15 minutes before the start of the main performance.

Tickets for Audio-described performances and Touch Tours must be booked at least 2 weeks in advance. Touch Tours start at 6pm for evening performances and 2.45pm for matinees.
