Best Seats In The House
- Seats: 2586
The David H Koch Theater is a huge theater and has over 2500 seats in the auditorium. This being said, the best seats depend on what type of ballet is being shown. In the case of The Nutcracker, the best seats for the intricate first act are in the orchestra and the best seats for the larger chorus scenes are in the front of the first and second rings. Audio is good across the whole theatre as the large orchestra are literally seated in the orchestra section, way in front of the stage, so the music penetrates all areas of the theatre without a requirement for amplification.
