Questions about buying a ticket and where to sitto see All Robbins 5/21

1) Where should I sit? I do not mind paying a lot, but not sure where. I am thinking about Second or Third Ring. Unfortunately I could not find anything on the website where you could see what the view is from the various sections. Awhile back there was an article about seating, but I can't find it.
2) Would it be better to buy the ticket online or calling the box office before I come into town or should I go directly to the box office on Friday morning/afternoon?
Any advice is appreciated - thank you in advance.

Second Tier is a lot like the front of the Dress Circle at War Memorial Opera House. Third Tier is like the back of the Dress Circle, but on a different level, not with a wide aisle separating them. (The First-Third Tiers of NYST only have about half a dozen rows each.)

"Afternoon of a Faun" was the second thing I saw at NYCB, and Darci Kistler and Afshin Mofid danced it. I also have happy memories of "Antique Epigraphs", which was choreographed for Stephanie Saland (brown), Kyra Nichols (purple), Maria Calgari (blue), Simone Schumacher (green), Helene Alexopoulos (red), Victoria Hall (gold), Jerri Kummery (tan), and Florence Fitzgerald (brick). I love the score, especially "Syrinx" for flute.
It should be a lovely program.

kfw - that was the article I had seen, thank you. Good to have for future reference.
Helene - The comparison to the Opera House was especially helpful. I have seen SFB perform Afternoon of a Faun and The Concert. The Concert is one of my Top 5 ballets, so I am looking forward to seeing NYCB's performance.
I will try to post my thoughts on the performance. Thanks again everyone!!!
