View from the cheap seats

Looking up at the expensive boxes, including the supremely expensive Central Box that used to be reserved for the Emperor when he wanted to catch a show.

Mind you, there are apparently no bad seats here. The guide explained that, finances aside, some people like to sit in the back to take in the whole scene, or up front to catch little details, it’s all up to personal preference. I don’t know if that’s what you’re supposed to tell yourself if you can’t afford a fancy box seat, but there you go.
