    performed in front of the Queen

    Hi,

    http://www.ldoceonline.com/dictionary/before_2

    * 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.

    Thank you!

    Re: performed in front of the Queen

    I think they are synonyms.
    I am not a teacher.
