Orchestra is a crap shoot. I always seem to have some tall politician or ex-Marine sit in front of me (or, one Mariinsky season, I got the seat directly behind Yuri Fateev...but he's short...ha-ha). The only really safe bets in Orchestra would be right on the aisle or in the first row after the passage way.

My favorite seats in the Opera House are Row S in the orchestra (the first row after the passage way), but those are the priciest. I also like Rows T through W, or so, though some of those rows are more raked than others. At an ABT performance, Makarova and McKenzie had house seats in Row T, and Makarova moved to a side aisle seat farther back after intermission because she couldn't see over the person in front of her.
The first few rows in the upper tiers are also good in the center; I've never sat farther back upstairs.

Lauren Lovette is debuting in Carousel w. Robbie Fairchild. (First cast is Tiler Peck w. Veyette). I wish they would have put Peck and R. Fairchild together for this ballet. .

On a related note, my date (yes, there are some foolish women) asked how she should dress (for the Saturday matinee). And I'm a little unsure about myself. When I saw the Washington Ballet at the KC, I found that wearing a tie definitely put me in the minority. Most of the women were dressed fairly well but not in the Saturday evening best (I went to a Wednesday evening and a Saturday matinee performance).
