Do you have any questions?

Firstly we would ask that you read through the information below to see if your question is already answered in this section. It will enable us to reduce the number of emails we receive, as the organization of this event is managed by volunteer staff.

DISCOUNT PRICES
The organization of the visit of HH the Karmapa is an enormous challenge on both logistical and financial levels and could not be undertaken without the support of numerous volunteers, sponsors and donors. We have tried to keep the ticket prices as fair as possible to cover just the organizational costs and therefore are unable to envisage any reduced prices for unemployed/students/refugees. We thank you in advance for your comprehension.

CHILDREN
Entrance is free for children up to 5 years old who will not occupy their own seat and will sit on their parents’ lap.

Théâtre du Léman, Genève :
the auditorium is accessible to persons with reduced mobility. The specially reserved zones are located in category 2 of the last row. The presence of an accompanying person is obligatory. People with reduced mobility can get a free seat for the person accompanying them.
