$50 Orchestra Seats

Sfopera General Director Gockley announced a plan to cut the price of orchestra seats for Bravo Club members. The tickets are normally $87-$155, unless one gets student or senior rush tickets, which are $25 or $30, respectively. The student rush tickets have gone up in price, they were a mere $15 last season. Given that the Bravo Club is meant for young professionals, the members generally do not qualify for the rush tickets. Also, one has to work for those tickets, they are not always available, and people start lining up for them as much as three hours before the box office opens.

Personally, I am not fond of the orchestra seats, though they are more spacious than seats on the dress circle and balcony levels, the incline is not as steep and sometimes it is difficult to see over people's hairdos. Additionally, the sound quality is not as good as on the upper levels. However, people tend to be better behaved the closer they are to the stage. So there are many considerations, dear reader!
