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...More
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...More
Good production great music and cute actors. This version omitted several transitions which I feel took away from the story. Instead it featured many dancing talents of the company. It was a lot of fun for my family to experience. They also had great access...More
This is about our sixth trip and it never disappoints every year. The choreography is wonderful the costumes spectacular, the sets are amazing, the orchestra is top-notch! This is the highlight of our holiday season every year.
I am by no means an expert but the 2017 production of the Nutcracker was by far the best I have seen in quite some time. I found the abundance of young people, male and female, refreshing. The choreography was well done. And my favorite...More
Houston is my home; therefore, a family tradition is to see the Houston Ballet perform the Nutcracker. Beware Boston Ballet is extremely subpar to the Houston Ballet. The Boston Nutcracker was an overpriced Boston School of Ballet Dance Recital. The show had kids that were...More
We always like to take in a show when away on holiday so decided to give the ballet a go. The opera house is beautiful and the prices for drinks etc were not as bad as we thought however the ballet was not for us....More
I got a job as an entry level Fundraiser to work on

Ballet which I loved as a child. The entry level fundraisers work in the basement of the building.I did this when I was stuck in...More
The entire program was magnificent. The quality of the dancing, the staging and the costumes, while minimalist - were perfect. The Opera House is the perfect venue. I highly recommend attending a performance other than the Nutcracker, as the Boston Ballet is extremely talented.
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
I'd like to see this in December. Is the official Boston Ballet website the only place to get tickets? I can get an Orchestra seat in row N for $86.00 right now. Is this a good seat? Is it better to wait and see what discount are offered closer to the time? Thanks.

You could wait until you get here and walk over to buy them. Personally I would get them now and yes they are good seats. The Boston ballet does a great job. I've seen their nutcracker a dozen times and many other productions.

Jazz, Blues, Comedy and Ballet? (6 Replies)
May I please ask for a little more advice: I favour jazz and blues, son favours comedy but we both want to do Boston Ballet! Any recommendations for the music and the comedy please and any clubs where we can eat as well as enjoy the music or comedy? Hope to secure stall seats for the Nutcracker on the Sunday evening (last of November or is it De 1st?). The theatre map does not show any unrestricted areas or pillars obsuring any views but before i try an online booking could anyone...More

The Boston Ballet is wonderful and you are in for a wonderful evening. There was a jazz link posted. Use the search engine. Scullers in Allston on the river is a good choice for Jazz. Boston has it share of Comedy Clubs. Jay Leno, Lenny Clark, Dennis leary are all from this area.
Weekend Trip: Dec 29-Jan 1 (3 Replies)
My wife and I are on our way to Boston tomorrow morning. We're coming to watch our first game at Gillette on Sunday, but will have two full days in Boston tomorrow and Saturday. The temps are frigid this weekend, with a chance of snow on Saturday. What is our best bet to get the most out of Boston, despite the temps? For a reference, we're staying near Boston Ballet on Tremont St, with no rental car. Thanks!

Go Pats! We will be there tomorrow as well and plan on bar hopping and eating our way around the city! Stay warm!
