Coronavirus casualty: Aladdin

The 2020 Buxton Opera House panto Aladdin has been postponed for 12 months—another casualty of the coronavirus pandemic.

A statement on the Buxton Opera House web site said it had taken the decision because there had been no government directive as to when it could safely reopen.

“The annual pantomime is a large investment and is only cost effective if we perform to our usual enthusiastic and large audiences. We are working on measures that will ensure a safe welcome back for our much valued customers and will open the Opera House as soon as we can.”
