Abendkasse

Hi, What does Abendkasse mean in Switzerland? Would the theatre sell available tickets at regular price 1 hour before the show begins? Or are the tickets sold at a discount?

Also, does anyone have any experience with using the Abendkasse versus purchasing the tickets in advance? Are there usually good tix available at the Abendkasse? (I'm in Zurich)

Thank you!

Abendkasse basically is the set number of tickets they hold back to sell at the venue locally on the night of the show, for people that can't or do not want to reserve.

This does not necessarily indicate any kind of discount though. An obvious advanta is that you do not have to cue or be dissappointed, when there are no more tickets available, obviously. Not sure about "good tickets" - I assume they do let people reserve the best seats available and then only sell the remainders on the night..
