Longer lockdown: No opera in German state before Eastermain
The state of Hesse has ordered theatres to stay shut until April.
That means no opera in Darmstadt, Kassel, Wiesbaden, Marburg and Gießen. The situation in Frankfurt is not yet clear.
Opera houses had been closed across Germany until the end of January. The Hesse edict is likely to be the first of many extensions as Covid infections soar across the country.
