With the Forum Leverkusen we have found an ideal venue close to Wuppertal, allowing us to perform for an audience despite the temporary closure of the opera house in Wuppertal. For our Wuppertal audience, a shuttle service will operate between the opera house Wuppertal and the Forum Leverkusen. This can be booked bindingly for 5€ when purchasing the ticket.
