“With a National and International Following!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

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. I had a season ticket to the ballet for many years and saw some of the greatest performances ever! As they said in Chorus Line, "Everything was beautiful at the ballet.
Graceful men lift lovely girls in white.
Yes, Everything was beautiful at ballet.
Hey! I was happy... at the ballet."

“One of the very top ballet companies”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

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. And, of course, they do a terrific job with their annual Nutcracker at the holidays.

“Beautiful Performances”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

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.

“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!
