Sadler's Wells is the home of contemporary dance productions in London. A smaller, 180-seat studio theatre (the Lilian Baylis Studio) was also built in the renovation to accommodate workshops of new works, as well as smaller productions for younger audiences.
Sir Matthew Bourne's all-male Swan Lake premiered here in 1995 on the main stage before going on to international success. Sadler's Wells theatre events take place year round, with musicals taking place in the summer months, and dance shows throughout spring, autumn, and winter.
The auditorium has three levels - Stalls, First Circle and Second Circle. The sightlines from most seats are very good, with no pillars obstructing views.
In the Stalls, the view from seats in Rows N-S may be slightly obstructed by the overhang of the First Circle.
In the First Circle, the view from seats in Rows L-M may be partially impaired by the overhang of the Second Circle.
The Second Circle may feel slightly removed from the action, and the view from the side seats in the front four rows is slightly impaired due to the seats being set at an angle.
