I have the impression that "My First Time at the Opera" is a victim of its success and the first shows are sold out. Booking seems to be open from January 15, 2020 for Play and La Bohème.

Hello, I am interested in the offer my first time at the opera but I can not access the registration form. Could you please tell me how to proceed?
