Tickets are strictly limited to a level which will allow social distancing both in the ‘auditorium’ area and at all points around the site, including for access. A range of seating options are available, take a look at our New to Opera FAQs to find out more.
All restricted view seats vary but as a guide, seats marked ‘Restricted View’ in the Dress and Upper circles are generally restricted by a pillar, and in the Balcony because they have a side view of the stage. Box seats also have a side view of the stage and sight-lines may be obscured by the sides of the Box. For more information about seating, please contact our Box Office.
If you would prefer seats with more leg room, we recommend not booking seats on the front row of any level, apart from the Stalls.
