    Exquisite interior design and magnificent acoustics. Visit the building for it’s own sake even if you don’t like the kind of music they usually play there.

    Amazing architecture, a sense of what it was long ago. NO leg room though so almost impossible to get comfortable after the first half hour of sitting. Try for aisle seats, little better.

    Great venue to watch a ballet. I've sat in almost every section & never a bad seat. I love all the the marble work & chrystal chandeliers. Gorgeous theatre. They also check ALL bags at the doors.

    Aisle seats on the outer aisles stagger outward giving an unobstructed view for children. You can also use booster seats that are provided for children to use.

    Theater is very wide, so seats on extreme sides may be obstructed/limited view. But on the plus side, are likely discounted!

    Be respectful and courteous and don't take any pictures or use your cell phone during a performance. There's a reason the ushers get angry when you snap pics: It's rude and annoying.
