The distribution of the categories is based on the distance from the main stage. The seating categories furthest from the main stage, which are less costly, offer a more global vision of the show. More expensive categories offer a closer view of the main stage and the show’s performers.

Some places have reduced visibility due to the presence of 8 supporting pillars in the arena. The pillars are pictured in Starticket’s sales system (on the map available at starticket.ch, upon seat selection) with a black dot. The seats concerned are proposed at discounted prices due to the degree of visibility obstruction.

Throughout the duration of the show (approx. 2 and a half hours without intermission) and for reasons related to safety and comfort, the show is not recommended for children under 6 years old.
Each person accessing the arena must have a valid ticket, regardless of age. In addition, there is no discount for children.
