As a first timer, the emails sent beforehand helped give some tips and what to expect. We were seated in the balcony circle center and had a great view. There were subtitles above the stage for people to follow along and we picked a night with OperaVision where there are live close ups/subtitles on screens for balcony views on both the right and left. Extremely glad they had the closeup views to see the costumes and facial expressions better, otherwise you should bring binoculars if you're in balcony. Highly recommend this theater.
