My wife and I are looking to get Bolshoi tickets for Romeo and Juliet that just went on sale in May. Tickets are costly and there's the balance of "I want to be there" versus "how much of a premium do I want to/can I afford to pay for a better experience".
Most of the inexpensive (~$100 or less) tickets are in the second row of the balconies. Looking at pictures, those are just chairs: there's no stadium seating or anything so I think we're talking a fairly bad experience without being able to see anything.
Then you get to $200 for front row of balconies but at that point, I guess you might as well just pay the $250-$300 and sit on the floor (Rows 10, 11, 13, 15, 16, and front row of Amphitheater). Any thoughts?
Also, the seats on the floor are mostly on the edge. Is there a problem with those such a foot traffic or something like that to beware of?
What about something like, if relegated to the upper levels, getting a front row and back row seat- one behind another- so that the two of us could kindof coordinate how we sit to afford each a better view?
