Did you mean: 

What focal length do I use to get pictures in a performance?

Lens Rentals did a series of images to get you an idea of what focal length you need in a theatre:

I am putting this here because this comes up occasionally and we can use this thread as a reference.

This is a pretty difficult question to answer.  First off is it legal to take photos of the performance?  Location of the shooter?  Lighting? And on and on....  Provide some of these queries first.

EOS 1DX and 1D Mk IV and less lenses then before!

The question is rhetorical. I was just posting a link to a good article that shows when you do have permission, what different focal lengths will look like at various points in the hall.
