English National Opera (ENO) has partnered with Uber to launch the Uber Box for performances of La bohème from 19-27 September.
Jamie Heywood, Uber’s Regional General Manager for Northern and Eastern Europe, said: “London wouldn’t be the great global city it is without our fantastic arts and culture.
“Lockdown has left many unable to access the venues they love, so Uber wants to help by bringing them the best that English National Opera has to offer at Alexandra Palace.
“ENO Drive and Live performances are a fantastic way to make opera safe and accessible in these difficult times, and we hope the Uber Boxes will appeal to young people who don’t own a car.”
A spokesperson for the ENO, said: “We’re partnering with Uber so that you can book an Uber Box static car if you don’t own a car. When booking your tickets, select the Uber Box option – this will offer you a good view of the stage and ensure you can maintain a safe distance away from other audience members. All Boxes will be deep cleaned between performances.
“After you’ve booked your Uber Box, you can choose to book an Uber ride to and from Alexandra Palace, or come on foot. All customers coming on foot must pre-book an Uber Box.”
