McCaw Hall?seating preferences

If at all helpful, when I go to the ballet, I do look to be able to be close enough to see the footwork, rather than an overall picture (i.e. from above). Thanks in advance for your help!!!

Do you have a preference about side v. center? (I'll move further back in order to get more center -- seating is very personal...)

Next best, if you want to spend a little less, would be First Tier Center. The first tier is still quite low, height-wise, and feels remarkably close to the stage.

My subscription seat is in the Orchestra in row Y, which is just under the Dress Circle overhang, which didn't affect the acoustics. It's a great place to be in the Orchestra, because of the rise, and you don't miss any of the footwork.
If you're coming down for the weekend, there is a Saturday matinee, Saturday evening, and Sunday matinee performance. There's a new standing room section in the back of the orchestra. That may be a way to squeeze in an extra performance, without breaking the bank, and the sightlines should be fine. (Opera fans I know have been able to scoot into empty seats as soon as the lights go down. I don't know how the ushers' "see no evil" policy is holding out, but it was really important for Parsifal )
