Anyone who has been before -Is it advisable to register first with the Opera House to save time - I was advised to do this at the Royal Albert Hall

Absolutely

Oh my word! :o After triple begging my Mum to think about taking me to this as we have to get there by Taxi. I am now very flustered (It didn't take much). If you need disabled seats (no steps etc..) and a carer with you, you have to register and get a hospital Consultant or G.P to sign all the paperwork. They haven't even been able to register me at the moment as you need two weeks notice to get registered. I have had to scan all my letters to them. They are really trying to help me but, I really don't know. Those tickets came out too quickly! :(

Congratulation's "Remark" :D

Just booked my tickets for Saturday night. Damn that was stressful. Every time I saw spots to reserve, originally being in the first row in the orchestra, I'd put the seats in my basket and the website would say "These seats are no longer available". :grumble: Ultimately had to settle for the front row of the Amphitheatre level as all other seats were taken! Looks like it will sell out in a matter of minutes.

I had the same experience with the balcony and grand tier and have given up because I only want front row tickets and I think we would find the amphitheatre level too high

Ugh. Yeah I had front row in the orchestra stalls on the opening night of the same show in 2016, totally worth it. So glad I've seen this show at least 5 times so the Amphitheatre level should be a new exciting perspective :lol:

Had the 'These seats are no longer available' come up for me too which was especially annoying as they were the exact ones I wanted, managed to get front row of the Grand Tier a bit further along though so not too bad to be honest.

Looking forward to this, got Soft cell tickets too so an expensive few weeks but something to look forward to.

Stupid suggestion but have any of you actually rang them to order? You may have more luck with that. Mind you, I was on the disabled line.

Same here..! Thought I had 2 front row seats for Saturday night and got that message. Had to settle for a second row seat for Saturday night which I'm not too fussed about.. Incidentally, how do you get pit tickets..? That option wasn't available..

standing in the Orchestra Pit: this is the closest area to the stage. Tickets for this area may be purchased when booking opens by choosing Select best available and then Orchestra Stalls / Pit Standing when browsing for tickets.
all sold out on the 4 nights, keep refreshing for Saturday, got the other 3 dates
