View Seating Plan

Balcony guide

The Balcony is located above the Orchestra, with a more intimate seating capacity in one single block of seating. Offering good views throughout, the section is well-raked to provide limited obstructions. Seats face the stage head-on, which can occasionally cause restrictions at the very ends of rows, specifically in seat numbers 101-102 and 119-120.

Spanning rows A-M, rows are equally sized throughout, with two vertical aisles that run either side of the block of seating. Upper and Lower Loges are positioned in front of the Balcony and face the stage at a stark side-angle, with BB elevated above AA.

As these Loges jut out, they can restrict the view at the very rear of the Balcony seating, where they protrude into view. Safety rails and lighting rigs can also obstruct the view in the Balcony.

Balcony Front Left

Rows in the front-left of the Balcony face the stage head-on, providing good, panoramic views of the action. A safety rail runs in front of Row A, which could occasionally obstruct the view in rows A-B. Legroom is standard in this area. Seats are higher-numbered here, reaching lower numbers toward the centre. Lower Loges AA, seats 9-16 and Upper Loges BB 9-16 are on this side, with BB elevated above AA. Both are complete with movable seating that faces the stage side-on.

Balcony Front Right

Rows in the front-right of the Balcony face the stage head-on, providing clear, panoramic views of the action. A safety rail runs in front of Row A, occasionally obstructing the view in rows A-B. Legroom is standard in this area. Seats are lower-numbered here, reaching higher numbers toward the centre. Lower Loges AA, seats 1-8 and Upper Loges BB 1-8 are on this side, with BB elevated above AA. Both are complete with movable seating that faces the stage side-on.

Balcony Centre

The Balcony centre is the best place to sit in this section, as it feels closer to the stage and there is less chance of any obstructions. Seats face the stage head-on and although they are not staggered, a steep rake ensures that you can see over those in front, and the safety rail in front of Row A does not explicitly block the view. Two aisles run either side of the seating block, providing potential extra legroom in aisle seats 101 and 120. Views become distant in the rear Balcony, from Row G toward the rear of the auditorium.

Balcony Rear Left

Rows in the rear-left of the Balcony face the stage head-on, providing mostly clear, if distant, views of the action. The Upper and Lower Loges jut out into view, which can block moments for seats in the very rear rows L-M. There is a good rake throughout the Balcony, although obstructions from the Loges and potential safety rails and lighting rigs may momentarily restrict the view. Due to the steep rake, legroom can become limited at the very rear of the seating.

Balcony Rear Right

Rows in the rear-right of the Balcony face the stage head-on, providing distant but clear views of the action. The Upper and Lower Loges jut out into view, blocking moments for seats in the very rear rows L-M. There is a good rake throughout the Balcony, although obstructions from the Loges and potential safety rails and lighting rigs may momentarily restrict the view. Due to the steep rake, legroom becomes limited at the very rear of the seating.

SeatPlan’s Best Views of the Stage

The best overall views in the Balcony can be found in the centre of rows A-F, where the steep rake ensures minimal obstructions and it still feels close to the action. These are the top price seats in the section, as they offer a panoramic view of the stage and ensure that detail can be seen.

Best Legroom Seats

Legroom is standard throughout the Balcony, with the option of extra space available in aisle seats, or in the Upper and Lower Loges AA and BB, where seats are movable.

Tips

• A safety rails run in front of Row A, only occasionally obstructing the view
• Lower Loge AA and Upper Loge BB contain movable chairs that allow for extra comfort
• Seats beyond Row G begin to feel distant from the stage

Pricing

Seats in the Balcony vary in price, mostly due to the increasing distance from the stage. Premium price seats can be found in rows A-F, where it feels closer to the stage and detail can still be seen with minimal obstruction. There is no discrepancy in pricing, even toward the very ends of the rows, which means it is better to sit as centrally as possible. Rows G-K are top price seats due to the minimal obstructions, whilst the cheaper seats in the Balcony are in rows L-M, where some obstructions come into play.

Bars

A bar and refreshment counter is available in the Balcony Lobby, which can be reached via steps or an elevator.

Toilets

Women’s and Men’s toilets can be found on this level.
