At the very top of the Opera in the audience section (so the top tier). The middle classmen would get these seats only to see what the rich and wealthy were wearing below in the audience. These seats weren't even in view of the stage. So whoever was sitting there wasn't able to see what performance was going on. When the middle classmen saw famous people they didn't like below they would actually throw spoiled food at them. Eventually chicken wire was added and the top tier was nicknamed "the Chicken Coup".
