I have been the to the Met only once, in ridiculously good orchestra seats that someone I knew could not use. I'm looking to get some tickets for this coming season, but budgets being budgets, blah blah blah. I can't afford where I sat, not by a long shot, and want to see as much as possible in reasonably acceptable seats. Anyway, is there a tremendously noticeable difference between the "Family Circle Front" and "Balcony" or "Orchestra Rear" seats? Are we talking Kenneth Cole to Loake here, or C&J, or what? Also, how are the "Family Circle Front" seats? Awful and insufferable? Sufferably bad? Not good but the performance is still enjoyable? A deal? I know there are some met-frequenters here and your help would be appreciated. Thanks!
