Wendy, when you bought your seats did they come up as 'Parterre' (with no block number) or was there a specific block (P2, P3). My tickets just state 'Parterre' with no block, so I am not sure if this means they are in P1?Mabeanie1 wrote:I have been playing around with the Marseille seating chart as I have been hunting for tickets and this is how I think the seating works. The Parterre is the area immediately in front of the stage. After that comes the Avancees or Avant Scene followed by the 1-er Gradins and so on. I think the Avant Scene is a raised area but GDP will confirm this for you (firstname.lastname@example.org). There are 3 central blocks in the Parterre. The middle one is P3, the one to the right of stage (Dino's side) is P2 and so on. There are 16 seats in each block but no row numbers (hence all tickets are Rang 0) so row 1 is seats 1-16, row 2 is 17-32, row 3 is 33-48 and so on.crystal wrote:We will be there, too. We have tickets avant scene no 058 and 059. Iwas also wondering could this be first row? I can't find seating plans with numbers.
Have a nice weekend, Christel
There is a good - but unnumbered - seating plan at http://www.ticketnet.fr. Search for Leonard Cohen, select the Mareseille show then go as if to buy tickets. A plan will come up which shows you where your allocated seat is but there is also a magnified area that you can slide around to look at other parts of the arena.
Hope that helps. BTW I sent a couple of e-mails to GDP to ask where particular seats were and I had prompt and specific replies back from them in both French (in response to an enquiry in very bad French) and in English (when I saw sense and wrote to them in English!)
Many thanks in advance
