Royal Ballet at the O2 in June

3 posts in this topic

I came across this announcement the other day on the ROH website.

http://www.roh.org.uk/theO2.aspx

Has anyone been to the O2 arena? What is the seating like? Can anyone hazard a guess as to what "Romeo and Juliet" might look like in that space?

I'm spending this year in Glasgow and London, so I'm very happy to be able to catch up with the Royal Ballet in person!

It's big. If you want to see anything, you need to sit either on the Arena or Level 1, relatively near the stage. I presume (and hope) that there will be screens for the upper level, but if you're content with that, you may as well buy the DVD.

I saw Carmen there in May, from pretty much the highest seat. The sound was good, but they didn't have any video, and I couldn't see who was singing what. I enjoyed it nonetheless, but I think this may have been helped because I've already seen Carmen a few times.

However, I'm still going to go! :)
