* used to say that something happens where it can be watched by people:
- Italy will face Brazil this afternoon before a crowd of 100,000 spectators.
- an actor who had performed before the Queen.
I would like to ask if we can use 'in front of' instead 'before' in the above two sentences or not.
- Italy will face Brazil this afternoon in front of a crowd of 100,000 spectators.
- an actor who had performed in front of the Queen.
I think they are synonyms.
I am not a teacher.
