Seating Overview

Ottawa's National Arts Centre organizes performances at a few different venues. The biggest acts typically perform at Southam Hall, which includes four levels of seating.


There are four sections within the Orchestra. The closest row to the stage is AA, and each section contains roughly 25 rows. Most seats have a very good view of the stage - even from the corners.

Upper Levels

Above the rear orchestra seats are three levels of additional seating. These are stacked above each other. In order, these are the Mezzanine, Amphitheater and Balcony.

Upper levels are separated into left and right sections and have six rows labeled A-F.
