- Merchant Boxes
- Doge's Booths - Designed by the renowned Jonaethiel of Helvetica, the patron’s boxes offer the best theatre going experience. Available only to the wealthiest of theatre goers, the booths provide space for a large family and its servants, whilst providing full frontal views of the show, and excellent acoustics thanks to the perfectly styled roof space.
- Marking the height of style and luxury, these boxes have evolved into status symbols, with boxes often remaining in the same family’s possession for several generations. Emblazoned with the family’s coat of arms and decorated in their personal colours, these boxes are a place to show off the wealth of a family to the general public.
However these booths have also taken on a more sinister role, as their privacy provides the excellent location for shady deals. Many a trade deal has been brokered in them, and careers have been made or destroyed in these boxes. Indeed, these boxes have become synonymous with power, decadence and good living.
