We try and go every year for a family trip. Try to catch a family show. The Boston Opera House is an experience in itself. They do sell drinks in lobby areas, but they are very pricey. My kids love checking out the orchestra right under the stage everytime we go.

The Nutcracker by the Boston Ballet is a CHristmad "must do". The opera house has been updated, I haven;t had a bad seat yet. Even if you think you are not a ballet fan, you might be urprised

This California couple enjoyed every minute of BB's last performance of "Jewels." We thought the company compared favorably with NYCB and ABT. The dancers presented Balanchine's choreography with precision and grace. The music was terrific and the venue was a fittingly distinguished old theatre from out of the past. What a treat!

We attended a performance of Balanchine's "Jewels". The seats were comfortable and very reasonably priced and we had an excellent view. The dancing and the music was magnificent and made for a very enjoyable evening. Recommended.

Boston Ballet was the poor niece to the NYC companies for many years but times have changed. The dancing is much improved, the music wonderful and venue beautiful and the entire organization worth supporting. If you're in town and have not been to the Boston Ballet, it is worth the price of admission.

I have been a subscriber to the Boston Ballet for several years and it just keeps getting better. This is not your grandmother's Boston Ballet! New energy and unique interpretations of programs are making the Boston Ballet a stellar experience.

the dancers were great. The Music was outstanding. NO canned music like other area venues. Its great to go to theater and hear a live orchestra and a excellent one at that. Don't miss any protection done by the Boston Ballet

I have seen most of the shows at the BB for the past two years. They are always excellent and never disappoint. Of course you need to like ballet in order to appreciate it and not be bored, but if that is your cup of tea- this is a great local offering.

The Boston Ballet is the best ballet company I've seen in North America which includes Toronto, Winnipeg and New York. The dancers are of excellent quality and the costuming and stage sets are always fantastic. We went once again to see the Nutcracker Ballet which is just another feather in the cap of the Christmas season in Boston. Their rendition... More

I was so disappointed this Season with the Boston Ballet's Close to Chuck. We are tired of seeing the same dancers year after year and all so young and tiny it is like watching a little child's performance. I have enjoyed some of their performances in the past; however, unless they begin to bring in new talent they will lose... More
