    As you might expect, tickets will not be cheap, with prices ranging from $84.50 to $199.50, and there’ll be a “select number’’ of premium seats available for $569.50. The maximum number of tickets that can be purchased per household is four. A lottery will be held for all performances for 40 orchestra seats that will be sold for $10 apiece.

    “Hamilton,’’ slated to run at the Boston Opera House Sept. 18-Nov. 18, has been a sensation since arriving on Broadway in August 2015. The show received a record 16 Tony nominations and won 11, including best musical, and also won the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for drama.
