Seating Areas

The Queen Elizabeth Theatre is divided into four seating sections: Balcony, Dress Circle, Mezzanine, and the Orchestra. Positioned at the back, the rear seating is set at its highest point, with a balcony that provides a bird’s-eye view of the stage. The Dress Circle offers an excellent choice for those who prefer an elevated position above the performers; this seating option extends to the sides of the theater. Below the balcony, additional seating choices are available, including the central Mezzanine area. Closer to the stage, there are further options for general admission Orchestra seating.
