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

Hello, I am interested in the offer my first fouis at the opera but can not manage to access the registration form. Could you tell me please follow the procedure.
