What is a relaxed performance?
In 2015 Opera Holland Park was the first opera company in the UK to put on a relaxed performance. A relaxed performance is about welcoming children with special needs (including Autistic Spectrum Conditions and/or learning disabilities) and, crucially, their families to the theatre to a performance where those needs are accounted for with a more relaxed atmosphere and some changes to the production itself if necessary e.g.: lowering of lights or sound at certain points of the show.
You can find more information about relaxed performances on The National Autistic Society website.
