I recently saw the Boston Pops tribute to Marvin Hamlisch. It was wonderful. I was traveling alone and spur of the moment decided to attend the concert. I bought the best "cheap seat" available and was advised that I could get a closer seat on the side of the theater. :( I could only see 3/4 of the Pops Orchestra. Next time I will go for a seat that faces the stage full on, no matter how far away it is.
