Went to see The Nutcracker, the building is gorgeous (great photo opportunities if that’s your thing) and small enough that there really isn’t a bad view (I was in dress circle Center Right and loved it). The performance itself was flawless, the orchestra was wonderful and the set was beautiful (loved the sparkling snow). Stand outs for the ballet performances were the Sugar Plum Fairy (so delicately beautiful - she seemed to be floating), the Arabian dance (so powerful, passionate and precise), the bear and rats were great and added humor and of course all the children were adorable (the black sheep and little girl who did the back flip stood out the most). Amazing production and I’ll definitely make a trip to the ballet a more frequent outing.

The building is stunning. We attended the performance of Giselle, and were impressed by the quality of the music, the dancers and the enthusiasm of the crowd. Prices, though steep, are less expensive than the D.C. area. Top notch for an enjoyable evening.

My girlfriend and I see the Nutcracker ballet every year in a different city around the world for the last 10 yrs. This one did not disappoint. The plot was well thought out taking consideration for the rich tradition while putting in fresh touches of class and humor including the intro with the children watching a story about the nutcracker prince and mouse king fighting, the mice having some freedom of expression, and the vehicle that carries Clara and the Nutcracker prince throughout the dream. One of the main sticking points that pushed this performance up the list of favorites is the fact they incorporated choreographed ballet for the children dancers. Typically the kids just skip around and almost run from spot to spot at the same time. It was great to see the future principal dancers and soloists show early technique. The principals and cast were wonderful, elegant, and powerful throughout the whole show. The only issue I have with this percormance is the orchestra. They were fast at times which seemed to throw off the timing of the show and also they were not as powerful as I would have liked. It was non-emotional when it should and was flat in the crescendos. The Boston Opera house is gorgeous and classic in its design. Definitely a must see and we would consider seeing another ballet from the Boston Ballet company if we are ever around Boston.

I brought my 5 yr old daughter to see the Nutcracker for the first time. I had seen the nutcracker many times but at the Wang Center. She fell in love immediately with the Nutcracker and the whole experience. She thought we were in the Beast's Castle from Beauty and the Beast! We had gone to the box office to get our tickets because they are at a much better rate when you do that. We had seats right up front and just off to the side a little bit. It was perfect!
