GR Ballet, GR Symphony & Opera GR Announce Entry Requirements

Performing arts groups provide updates on what guests can expect for the upcoming season

The Grand Rapids Ballet, Grand Rapids Symphony and Opera Grand Rapids have announced updated health and safety protocols for their upcoming seasons at DeVos Performance Hall. Masks will be required for all guests while attending events. Guests will also be required to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID test, along with a matching photo ID, outside of the venue prior to entering each event. Updated policies and attendance requirements are as follows:

  • Audience members 12 years of age or older will be required to show proof of fully vaccinated status. The last dose of the vaccine must have been administered at least 14 days before concert admission.
  • In the absence of such proof of vaccination, a negative COVID-19 test administered within 48 hours of concert attendance is required.
  • Masks covering mouth and nose are required for all audience members (of all ages) while on the premises and during performances.
  • The DeVos Performance Hall doors will open two hours before the start of events to allow ample time for vaccine, test and security checkpoints, as well as will call and ticketing.

The organizations will continue to monitor the COVID environment and may change policies at any time, if necessary. Please note that protocols may vary for individual performances.

Broadway Grand Rapids will announce its health and safety policies at a later date. Protocols for audience members attending Broadway Grand Rapids performances will be determined by each separate touring show in collaboration with local and state health authorities.
