Wow, so I finally got onto the website. I'm number 1,875 in queue waiting to buy tickets.

No. 1415 in queue. I'm really nervous because I'm trying to get tickets for opening night. All I can say is, I hope they have a strict limit on the number you can buy. Some scalper jerk is probably scooping them all up.

And it's a busy signal. Big surprise.

Well, that was fun. But I got my tickets! Finally got to book them online. And I think they are decent seats, in the center balcony. There were only a few tickets left, no doubt they will be sold out by the end of the day.

Here's the ROH seating plan, might as well leave it here for anyone doing future searches.

You've got to be kidding me! I can't believe it's that NUTS! I just tried to go on their website, and I'm immediately directed to the waiting room, so I can't even find out if the performance is sold out yet or not.

Your seats sound great. So were you up for 2.5 hrs in the virtual waiting room? It was absolutely awful that the site crashed and you were put back in the end of the queue!

Which day are you going?

Yep. 2.5 hours waiting, plus the website crashed twice and there was nothing but busy signals from the box office phone number. I am so lucky to have gotten tickets at all, let alone decent ones! We're going opening night, Monday 17th (my dates changed around since when I first made this thread)

I just checked the website and JDF's performances are pretty much sold out- there are a couple of 650GP boxes available on a couple of nights but that's it!

Good job! Persistence paid off! I love opening night - there's so much anticipation and electricity in the air. Enjoy!

So I just found out (from another forum) that some people have 2 or more windows open at the same time, so in case one window crashes, they don't lose their spot in the virtual queue like you did!

Hi yk! It was absolutely wonderful, the hightlight of my trip! I made a quick post on the opera thread about it. I was thrilled with our seats, we had a perfect centre view of the stage. Worth every penny and every minute spent in the virtual queue.
