Good and comfortable seating for an afternoon performance enabled us to save on the evening prices for the same ballet. Acoustics and visual effects were both excellent, though some people filming the show should have been thrown out of the auditorium.

This is a stunning venue, with both a world-class concert hall and a wonderful theatre. If you're a Brit abroad, it's like discovering London's Barican centre by the sea. A wonderful place to hang out.

Hi there! Yes, if the seats are not labelled (restricted view), you should have a clear view of the stage from Circle 1 all the way up to Circle 3. Hope this helps, thanks!
