choosing seats at La Scala

Jump to last reply

We're going to be in Milan in a few weeks, and we'd like to take in a concert of Schubert sonatas, performed by Daniel Barenboem, part of a Schubert cycle they're featuring this year.

Almost all the seats are the same price, except for those in the galleries or the second row of boxes. We don't want either of those, so our choices are in the orchestra or the boxes. We have the option of choosing specific seats, or of choosing a section and letting them give us the best seats in that section.

Does anyone have any advice on the best spots for a concert of piano music? How are the views from the orchestra seats? I've heard that the acoustics are superb everywhere, but if there is any advice regarding the best spots, I'd be glad to know. There aren't a lot of spots remaining, Mostly, I can choose between orchestra seats about half-way back, or box seats at the stage end of the horseshoe. The seats on the left seem to be more popular, as there are fewer of them left.
