Hello Hobbit 123,
Only yesterday i queued for day seats for La Bayadere( Thursday 14th March 2002), being the first time ever I had put myself through this torture of getting up so early and queueing for day seats.
I arrived at 9.00am (later than i had intended ) and was 9th in the queue ,. After asking a few questions to the people in front on myself , I found out that the first arrivals( three Americans on holiday)had arrived at 7.30am, being two and a half hours before the day seats went on sale. At the opening of the box office at 10.00am there were approximatly 25/30 people in the queue.
To try and get as much info as possible from the box office staff about trying to get day seats I pumped them with questions and elicitated that for some days they still have tickets at 12.30pm for day seats , but obviously for the more popular performances the tickets are snapped up by early queuers( especially for Opera).
On the day there are 67 ? seats available for sale , some in the Amphi, with most seats being in the Stalls Circle at I think £33.00.
However their are 5 , repeat 5 seats available , in the stalls circle, stage right , restricred view at £6.00( Saturday prices) . If you manage to get the the two furthest seats from the stage , i think C 99 / C 98 , you can see a lot of the dancing , the closer you get the stage the more restricted the view is.
I suggest you get there early , and I hope you get the seats you want.
