Designed by the notorious late 19th
Century/ early 20th
Century theatre architect William G.R. Sprague, the Novello adopts the classic theatre design of the period. Spread across 4 levels, the Stalls, Dress Circle, Grand Circle and Upper Circle, the Novello is of a moderate size seating just over 1050 audience members.
Due to the traditional 1900’s layout of the auditorium and specifically the auditoriums curvaceous sweep, some side seats, such as those in the Dress Circle and Grand Circle as well as the boxes have a slightly restricted view in so much as patrons may have to lean forwards to get a good look at the stage. Therefore, before purchasing tickets I recommend that you check the seating guide below which has a full break down of seating prices and restricted view seats. Please note that some prices vary as weekend tariffs are higher.
||Side seats in row AA are within this price category as they offer a slightly restricted side on view of the stage.
||Seats toward the lower end of this price category make up the majority of row AA (bar the middle 4 seats) as they are considered to have a restricted view. Seats toward the top end of this category make up around the first and last 3-4 seats of each row as they have a lesser view of the stage than central Grand Circle seats.
