Robert goes to Carnival Center for Swan Lake and has some interesting analysis of ticket prices and comparative value. He concludes that even the worst seats in the house are pretty good, and the prices are reasonable. See my Carnival Center review for more, including a photo from the opera house’s worst seat (about 2/3 of the way down the page). The legroom issue is interesting, since of course each additional inch of legroom means you sit further away depending on how many rows are in front of you.

    Thanks for the link Alesh. The legroom is really not an issue with me, and you’re right, more legroom means you sit farther back from the stage.

    I’d assumed that there was an accepted standard for legroom in these types of halls that is used universally. I believe that the first row on every level has extra legroom, so if you buy your tickets early you’ll be rewarded with uncrampness (not to mention a superior view).

    Is that the upskirt view? I personally always prefer sitting a little above dance to be able to see the choreographic patterns.

    Really nice “smaller swirly thing on the ceiling”.
