One of the West End’s largest theatres, the Apollo Victoria Theatre has a seating capacity of 2,304 split across the Stalls and Circle. Decorated in a lavish Art Deco style, both the interior and exterior of the Apollo Victoria reflects Wicked’s emerald green city of Oz.
The Stalls is a vast section that spans from Row A to Row ZF, resembling the concert-like Stalls of the Dominion Theatre. Split into several blocks of seating by various aisles, there are excellent views on offer throughout for a range of budgets. Views towards the rear of the Stalls are rarely obstructed by the Circle overhang, offering good, clear views of the entire stage, although action may feel distant at times. Premium seats are located in the centre-front sections of the Stalls. Those looking for a cheaper price should seek seats in Row Q and back or seats towards the ends of rows, which are discounted but still offer good views. Legroom throughout this section is excellent.
Similarly to the Stalls, the Circle offers excellent views across the board. A slight downside is that the seating can feel slightly distant from the stage, but the spectacular nature of Wicked means this is not a huge problem. The Circle offers a large price difference in ticket prices, with front-centre seats being more expensive than the rest. Bargain tickets can be found in the rear of the Circle seating, still offering a great overall view of the stage, if slightly far away. Legroom in this section is very good.
