I got an early birthday gift last week as I got to watch the Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra at the Vice-Presidential Box of the CCP. Move over VP Leni!
I only discovered that night that there were Parterre Boxes actually facing the stage! I always thought nasa gilid lang sila.
In my fantasy world, I've always dreamt of watching the opera from the parterre boxes a la Julia Roberts (Pretty Woman) and Keira Knightley (Anna Karenina). My wish has finally been granted thanks to a kind CCP staffer - di lang nga opera - but an orchestra is close enough - choosy pa ba?
Beside our box is the Presidential Box and it seats 12 people. That's where we want to sit in the next PPO concert! LOL
By the way, these seats cost around 25-50K during the Wicked and Les Miserables run, but they're worth it, if you have that extra cash!
