This past Tuesday, the government announced that cultural events with up to 100 persons in the audience may resume. We would like to take advantage of this possibility as soon as possible, offering you live concerts again starting on Monday, January 11. Of course, all sanitary rules and measures in place before the second lockdown will remain in place and will be followed meticulously.
We are eager to welcome you back to breath-taking concerts by great musicians. Still, some things will differ from the familiar, due to the current situation. For all concerts we have taken the most extensive measures possible to ensure the safety of all involved, audience and artists alike.

Cancellations and Modifications
Because of travel restrictions or safety measures, unfortunately it was necessary to cancel some concerts and to shorten or modify other programmes.
In order to comply with distancing rules on stage and inside the hall, some works requiring a large orchestra had to be replaced with others.
Most of the events scheduled at the Salle de Musique de Chambre were moved to the Grand Auditorium for the same reason.
We have taken a number of measures to enable you to enjoy your visit to the Philharmonie safely and without concern. This, however, also means that the Ticket Office at the Philharmonie will remain closed to the public for the time being, and you can only buy tickets on the internet, via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or, from Monday to Friday from 10 am to 6 pm, by phone (+352 26 32 26 32). In the following, we offer some important information on ticket purchases.
These and other concerts through January 24 may be booked starting on Friday, January 8, by calling (+352) 26 32 26 32 or by emailing us. Tickets for both OPL concerts on January 11 are available starting today.
Purchasing a ticket – either in advance or at the evening box office, which opens one hour before the event – is a prerequisite for attending a concert.
