Budapest opera house

Wanting to go see the Nutcracker at the end of November in Budapest. Does anyone have any information about the seats? What are the best seats to get ....orchestra, balcony or box seats? Also how big are the seats? I am a larger person and want to know if I will be comfortable in the seats. Thanks!

The monumental Hungarian State Opera house is closed for renovations which, considering the size and opulence of the place, are bound to take some time and lots of money. Ballet and opera have been moved to the Erkel Theatre. Some info and pictures here: http://www.opera.hu/v/opera-ballet-concerts-at-the-erkel/
The box seats appear to be raised well above the orchestra floor. However, with ballet, it is always wise to sit somewhat back from the stage so the whole stage area is within view.
