Teatre Lliure's position
TEATRE LLIURE offers, through its website (www.teatrelliure.com), tickets, season tickets and supplementary services concerning shows and performances in the various halls of TEATRE LLIURE. In the same way, through the website (www.lliureonline.com), it offers subscriptions and purchasing of digital shows.
Tickets for shows and performances are subject to availability and under no circumstances does their promotion through the website imply any guarantee of availability.
If the circumstances so require, TEATRE LLIURE reserves the right to modify the dates, times, programmes or performers advertised, as well as to suspend the show. Once the ticket has been purchased, it may not be exchanged nor the price returned except due to cancellation of the event, in which case TEATRE LLIURE undertakes to return the ticket price. In spite of this, if the suspension is due to an act of God or force majeure, the user will not be entitled to reimbursement of the price.
