6. "RE: Day seat tickets"|
In response to message #0
Everyone will form their own view about the side stalls sold on the day.|
- proximity to the stage
- above the level of orchestra stalls, so a better angle to the stage
- no possibility of being obscured by those in front of you
- relatively cheap - £16-£26 from memory.
- if you don't get there early and you get the seats closest to the stage, then the angle and the area of the stage that you can't see gets worse quickly. The penultimate row C(?) is better than D(?) as the view in the latter is slightly obscured by the overhang and lights.
- they have padded bench seats and depend to some extent on your neighbour's consideration. i have occasionally asked people alongside me not to lean forward as they were obscuring my view.
Compared with the:
-stalls, where your view can be very obscured and many seats are too low in relation to the stage
-anywhere else in this poor theatre for dance, where you are too far from the stage in my view,
I rate these seats highly. I have a better experience there than I did from the full price stalls circle seat I bought recently. At the money they are definitely my favourites. At any price they come very close.
For most RB performances, arriving at 9am (box office open at 10) will ensure a good seat. Please don't tell too many people about these seats, otherwise we'll have to queue from 7am soon.
