Nutcracker

Reliably a great show year in and year out. The Boston Opera House has incredible ambiance and itself is worth visiting. Would recommend seeing

My mom, who passed away last year, was a season ticket holder at the Boston Ballet for many, many years. She and a friend would get dressed up, go into town, and enjoy the ballet.

With about 5 or 6 different presentations a year, including the classical nutcracker, this is a must in Boston if you have a chance. Great theater, great dressing, great dancing, affordable seats! Go!

The Boston Ballet has both an international and national following. An evening at the ballet in Boston transports you to a new place. This is one of the top ballet companies in the world.

The Boston Ballet has risen to the ranks of the best ballet companies in the US, presenting a wonderfully varied season of traditional and contemporary ballet and dance. As a subscriber, we look forward to every performance and even have our favorite company members, so familiar have we become with the individual dancers. Helped by a fine orchestra as well.... More

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.

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!
