We went to see several performances including 2 of the Quito jazz festival. Each time we got an advanced ticket, we were issued a provional ticket. This means you have to back and get a "real" ticket which can be done about 24 hours ahead of time. It wasn't until our third performance we realized you do it just before the performance. If you get a top balcony seat you cannot get into the front doors of the theatre. The guy in the top hat just kept pointing. It was super frustrating as we kept running to side doors where we were told to go back to where we started. Finally someone took us and others like us to a separate line to the left of the main entrance but still on the plaza. We sat in the orchestra, the top balcony, and box seats. All had great views. The top seats had no cushioning, so .... Stage lighting was hardest on us in orchestra seats as it often glared directly into our eyes. This even happened a few times in the box seats. There was no option for drinks or snacks, and we saw lots of folks with bottles of water. Acoustics seemed good. Very affordable, ranging from free, but you have to get a ticket from the "office" to $20 for box seats. Seemed like a lot of last minute buying at allperformances. I was a little worried about getting a cab late at night, but all three times it wasn't that hard. There is a lot of police presence.
