  1. Hello I hope I didn’t post this in the wrong place. We plan on going to the ROH to see a ballet in November (most probably Sleeping Beauty) for the 1st time. And I need help with choosing the seats left. I am willing to pay more if the seats do actually make a difference. From what I gathered it’s better to be sat in the middle part of the ROH because of the horseshoe shape so the options are: - Amphitheatre Row C62 - C61 - Stalls Circle Row C63-64 (no option in the grand tier) It would be great to have recommendations from people who know the ROH seats. Thanks!
  2. Sorry if this has been posted elsewhere- mods please remove this if need be - but I have just noticed my ROH account page now includes links to the coloured seat maps, with prices, that used to be published, and then went missing. They are there for the Autumn, Winter and Spring Seasons. I have downloaded them to my PC but the files are too large to upload here, so hopefully these links will work... https://static.roh.org.uk/seatmaps/2019-20/ROH1920-BP1-Seating+Plans.pdf?_ga=2.90681050.1528449642.1570985255-1611466181.1570985255 https://static.roh.org.uk/seatmaps/2019-20/ROH1920-BP2-Seating-Plans.pdf?_ga=2.266784590.1528449642.1570985255-1611466181.1570985255 https://static.roh.org.uk/seatmaps/2019-20/ROH1920-BP3-Seating-Plans.pdf?_ga=2.266784590.1528449642.1570985255-1611466181.1570985255
  3. Moving this out of the "Germany ..." thread so it doesn't get lost among 3 dozen pages: Munich:
  4. Hi all, Looking on the Mariinsky Theatre website and it doesn’t seem to show the view from the seats like the ROH website does.... Can anyone who has been to the Mariinsky please recommend which seats have a good view of the stage? Thanks!
  5. There are 6 of us going to see Don Quixote in the Mariinsky. We've never been before but could anyone advise if 1st tier Right side Box 8 Row 2 would be a good place to sit? I'm just hoping its not too far away and its not obstructed. Also, any tips would be great also!
  6. Hi hope I've put this in the right place and that it doesn't get overlooked! I'm thinking about starting going to more opera at ROH. However the prices are a lot more than ballet which really restricts me to pretty much the lower/upper slips, as well as SCS tickets (if I can get them!). I have never sat in the lower/upper slips and would be happy to give them a go for opera (and really don't have much choice otherwise...) as unlike ballet I feel you don't need to be centre facing. However my one concern with all the cheap places (slips/SCS, side stalls circle) is can you still see the 'subtitles'. I would find it impossible to follow along without these (I mean I'd get the general gist I'm sure but I don't know opera or italian/french/german well enough to understand what they're saying). In short - is there adequate provision to see 'subtitles' while sitting/standing in the upper/lower slips and stalls circle (standing and at the extreme sides)? Thanks!
  7. Hi all, Excitingly I'm off to New York in May, and needless to say will be taking out a second mortgage on my legs to see NYCB perform while I'm in town. Only problem is, I want to see three performances. While I'm sorting out the whole not-having-won-the-National-Lottery-yet issue with Camelot I can't really plump for top seats for all three, so does anyone have any suggestions for a decent balance of good seats at the David H. Koch Theater that don't cost the earth? I'd also welcome tips for fun things to do while in NYC! Oh, and if we have any members on the forum in NY who fancy meeting up and saying hello, I'll be flying solo and am always up for meeting fellow balletomane forumites. Thanks!
  8. Hi All, Not sure where this question sits but I'm sure someone will move it to the more relevant place if needed I'm wondering if anyone can help me with ROH seating. It looks like there are seats for price ranges £66, £45, £30 - this is looking at Sleeping Beauty on the 11th Jan but when I select the price range it doesn't highlight the seats in question. Can anyone tell me where abouts these seats are please? Is this because they are not on sale as yet? Also, out of the lower price categories is there anywhere that would be recommended for seating? Its for an Adult and a 10 year old. I have never set foot in the ROH so really unsure in my research!! Thanks very much ETA another question on the Royal Ballet - will they likely tour any of these productions? We are Manchester based.
  9. Prompted finally to ask this question by a discussion in the Romeo & Juliet thread: I've wondered for years to what extent where we sit affects how we perceive a performance/work, and whether this is a contributory factor in why there can be so many differing views of a performance. I suspect this is likely to be truer at the Royal Opera House than probably anywhere else, given how varied the seating and views are, but it also must apply to those who sit in the front rows compared with those up in the gods. I'm sure there's a good reason why the main dance critics tend to get given the same seat for the performances they're reviewing at the ROH! Starters for ten from me: 1) Several McGregor ballets which I've always said look better from on high than stalls circle level 2) A Leanne Benjamin/Edward Watson The Dream which I really enthused about (and hold up against all other performances of the work) - but I was sitting in a (bargain-priced) seat in the stalls at the time. That certainly helped me pick up all the fine detail - but did there happen to be more of it/was it better at that performance, or was it just that I could perceive it better because I was much closer?

  11. My husband has just received an invitation to name a seat in the new LInbury Theatre. He will not be accepting the invitation (the minimum price is £1000!) but the advantage of this mailing is that it came with a seating plan for the new theatre. I found it very interesting and thought it worth scanning so that you could all see it.
  12. I have a ticket for an Insight Evening later this month in the Clore. Can anyone tell me if the studio has been changed/"upgraded" as part of the new "Open" programme? Have to admit I'm hoping the seating has been improved as in the Linbury. Linda
  13. Just been looking into booking seats for Don Q. The idea of having a photo of the seat and from the seat is a good one, but why doesn't the view from the seat at least have the curtains open?! Daft! And while I'm here - where do I look for seat recommendations? I presume it's not quite as simple as "you get what you pay for" and there may be one or two (relative!) bargains to be had
  14. For a while a number of Stalls Circle seats nearest the stage have been unavailable "for acoustic reasons" (A4 to A13, A101 to A111, B6 to15, B98 to B106, C12 to 16 and C97 to C101). However these seats are now showing up, priced, on the Pricing Plan for the general booking for the Winter Season, which opens 31 October, and also for the Spring Season events - see attached example plan (for Romeo and Juliet). So it looks as if these cheaper seats are now coming back into general availability. I have emailed the ROH for confirmation and will report back - unless anyone is in the know already?
  15. I am hoping to attend a couple of performances at The Linbury next year and I was just wondering about the seating. Is it static seating or can it be re-arranged depending on the performance? Is the front row OK? Is it well raked if the front row is not available? Thanks in advance.
  16. Sorry - I may be posting this in the wrong place, but I just want to know what it's like sitting in the front row of the Amphi - I've just snapped a SL ticket up for a friend, (fairly central) but am now not sure whether she'll see over the tier as she's short. Any advice, please? Thanks Jacky
  17. Northern Ballet is in Bradford from 05-07 October with their mixed programme "A Celebration of Sir Kenneth MacMillan" comprising Concerto, Las Hermanas and Gloria. Please use this thread to record your thoughts on the performances. Here is a short film released by the Company:
  18. I may be going for a long weekend to Vienna, in November, and if so will try to book tickets for a triple bill on November 6th. https://www.wiener-staatsoper.at/en/season-tickets/detail/event/967926754-macmillan-mcgregor-ashton/ Does anyone have any tips on seats, best way to book? And any restaurant recommendations would also be welcome! Thank you Graham
  19. I'm writing with a question...well, actually, several. My guess is that these questions have been asked and answered before. I did some searches, but a "Royal Opera House" + "tickets" and variants thereof turn up a zillion different threads, so I gave up. I have attended the Royal Opera House occasionally--usually when work has taken me to the UK--but not often and not recently. And I've almost never been able to plan carefully ahead of time. But this year may be different. Work will take Mr. Drewco to London in June--I'm coming with him and we plan to make a holiday of it when his work is out of the way. We hope to attend several performances of Swan Lake and, as we don't see a lot of world class ballet, we are willing to splurge on good seats if we can get them. I see on the Royal Opera House website that tickets go on sale for the general public in early April, but I have a few questions about the process: 1)When are casts likely to be announced? work dictates this trip but we have a little flexibility and casts could make a difference to our arrival/departure dates. 2)Any risk "friends" buy up much of the house before the tickets go on sale to the general public? 3)Are seats banked in all sections of the theater. I have a vague memory that Stalls circles are hardly banked at all--that row B or C for someone short, like myself, might be a disaster. (We are going to splurge if we can--but if we splurge we want to be able to see the stage). 4)Any advice about Grand Tier and Balcony seats? or sight-lines generally? Years ago I got some excellent advice on ROH stalls circles seats on an American message board and of course I remember the seats I actually sat in...But any thoughts from people here would be welcome--especially advice for short people. (My body has long since informed me that my standing room days are over.) Thanks for your patience with these questions...
  20. I am about to book tickets at the Opera Garnier for November triple bill by Paris Opera ballet. Please can I have some advice about where in the theatre is a good place to sit and any tips about visiting the opera house. Thank you
  21. Can anyone offer some help to a complete novice please? I am looking to book seats at the Royal Albert hall but have found the options very confusing. Can anyone explain the differences I the areas, what is the loggia, raising circle grand circle etc. Can anyone recommend where is the best place to sit to watch a ballet? Generally when I go to the theatre I prefer not to be too far forward, don't want to feel like I'm looking up at the dancers feet, but I have no idea what would be considered a good seat/ good view for watching ballet. TIA
  22. I am lucky enough to find myself in St Petersburg for a few days next month and should be able to make time for a visit to the Mariinsky. I am fine with practicalities (booking through the .ru and not the .com site etc) but would appreciate advice from all the knowledgeable Russian ballet followers here on what would be best to see. Available options during our stay are The Nutcracker in the new Mariinsky II or a programme (details as yet unpublished) called Michel Fokine's ballets in the Mariinsky itself. Casting is not yet available for either. I would happily do both but my partner will want to go to an opera in return for me dragging him to ballet, so I must choose one or the other. My instinct is to go for the Fokine programme, not least because it is in the historic theatre, which I would love to see. Does anyone have any other clues/insight into what I might expect from the Fokine programme or is it safe to presume that since it is the Mariinsky it will be good and interesting whichever ballets they pick? Or am I crazy to pass up an opportunity to see one of the 'Big 3' Tchaikovsky ballets done in its city of origin? As a follow up question, if the Fokine is the better option, where is the best place to sit in the historic theatre? There are still seats available at all levels from what I can see. Thank you in advance for any assistance!
  23. Hoping to get tickets to see NB Casanova at Norwich Theatre Royal, and wondered if anyone could suggest where the best seats would be, without a restricted view. Thanks for any suggestions.
  24. Has anybody been to the Royal Festival Hall on the South bank? I am booking for the ENB's Romeo and Juliet next August, and would like to know what the Side Stalls and the boxes are like. Does anyone know, please, can you see all the stage?
