“Dancing, Music, Beauty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014 via mobile

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!

“Lovely evening out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

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 has grown up”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

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.

“On your toes!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

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.

“wow perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

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
