View from Stalls ZZ25 by neil_barclay on 14 Jan

The Stalls are divided into four separate blocks by vertical aisles running the whole length of the theatre. The auditorium feels gigantic, with almost 30 rows of seats and a maximum of 50 seats per row in the rear section. The rows widen towards the rear section creating a number of sight problems for those sat at either end of each row.The two central blocks are the best to sit in due to their proximity to the stage and clear sight lines. The auditorium is well raked, meaning that even seats which are further back have a good view of the action. The stage is set quite high, and so the first couple of rows should be avoided for those who do not wish to crane their necks looking whilst watching the show.

The Dress Circle overhang occurs a third of the way back, meaning in the rear third of the Stalls the top of the stage cannot be seen. There are no particular obstructions in this section, meaning most seats offer a clear view. For a cheaper alternative, seats towards the sides may be better value for money, giving an angled view of the show. The rows are built on a slight curve around the orchestra pit, but this doesn't create any particular problems.

    You can see the whole stage and as, during Evita, there's nothing going on particularly high up you can see everything. However, I would imagine in other show the front of the dress circle may cut off a little of the action. It felt a long way back so I would prefer to be further forward to really feel part of the action, and to have a better view of facial expressions. However, the sound was fabulous and carried all the way to the back no problem. The only issue I had is the height doesn't go up massively towards the back and this caused me an issue as there was someone who was slightly taller in front and the seat is almost directly behind the one in front. I was able to sit towards the side of my seat and look through the gap which was fine until the person in front started moving around and I had to keep moving too. Overall therefore I'd go further forward if I were to go again as I believe the seats were the same price throughout.

    I was in very good seats for this show, right in the middle and had a good view. I'm pretty short and had to dodge a few heads but overall was a very good view. If I make a return to the theatre, this is the area I'd aim to book for.

    Seat was well placed, good rake, sound was mostly clear although band did drown out performers at times, possibly more a sound issue. Am 6 ft tall, medium build.
