A theatre in Russia is allowing one individual per show in an attempt to curb the spread of the highly infectious coronavirus.
The Perm Opera and Ballet Theatre will now offer this service termed as “one-on-one” which is designed to create a new kind of interaction. Performances will be streamed online and one individual will be allowed into the theatre to watch in person.
Located in Perm, Russia, the theatre is set to accept applications for those wanting to attend the performances alone. Selected individuals would be screened by a doctor before entering the theatre.
Principal Stage Director Marat Gatsalov said in a statement that the value of one customer has the same value as that of a full house.
We are ready to hold performances for one person because in the end … one spectator has the same value as a full houseMarat Gatsalov
Russia has so far recorded 438 cases of the virus, as well as one coronavirus-related death.
The authorities have barred foreign nationals from entering the country until May in an effort to stop the coronavirus from spreading further, and have cancelled or heavily restricted public gatherings.
