    Boxes to stage left at the Aldwych Theatre
  • Description
    Black and white photograph showing the boxes to stage left at the Aldwych Theatre. The photograph is taken from the dress circle, and from a position to stage right, so as to focus on the auditorium wall to stage left. Visible architectural elements include: the orchestra pit, which is divided from the stalls by an orchestra rail and curtain; the dress circle; the upper circle; the small box behind the dress circle slips to stage left; and the main boxes to stage left, which are flanked by fluted Ionic piers rising to a semicircular arch. The box furnishings, including the interior wallpaper, the drapery in the highest of the main boxes, and the stair-rail leading down into the box below, can also be seen clearly.
