  1. Hi
    I’m afraid it is sold out – although the National Theatre does have a Day Seats programme – with tickets available from 9.30am on the day of performance.
    Also Phedre is being broadcast to over 50 cinemas on 25 June as part of the NT Live scheme. Thanks

  2. hi
    i don’t think they have published the full calendar yet – apart from the fact that it starts in June. I think it will appear shortly from the National Theatre.
    cheers
