I saw a mixed bill including Etudes in here. I really enjoyed the talented artists or Boston. The auditorium is neo-classic and the foyer is great.

This is our second year of subscribing, after seeing individual shows here and there for a few years. The company is incredibly talented and the Opera House is gorgeous. The variety of performances is excellent: a mix of traditional ballets (Swan Lake) with contemporary/world premiere...More

A few weeks ago my husband and I attended a Sunday afternoon performance of 'LeCorsaire' at the beautiful Boston Opera House. The ballet was charming - well-danced and fun - and the building is beautifully restored. There was absolutely nothing about our visit that we...More

I love ballet, and I've seen Swan Lake and The Nutcracker. Always charming, and affordable prices. You can enjoy performances even from the seats that are far from the stage.

I saw Swan Lake. I like modern and classical dance. I saw a matinee so the rpincipal dancers did not perform the lead roles, but the show was excellent.

"Mirrors" is playing May 6-28 at the Opera House with 2 world premieres. The performances are breathtaking, beautiful and memorable, especially the pas de deux "Belong" and "Smoke and Mirrors". All weave together classic and contemporary ballet. Definitely not to be missed.

This is my first time watching the Boston Ballet perform something other than the Nutcracker. I don't know if it's just because Swan Lake lacks the magic of the Nutcracker, but I found a few parts of the Acts rather dull. The group swan dances...More

Good dance quality, always worth a visit. Better dancers at night but matinee also good if you prefer to be home early. Very family friendly, have taken daughters and nieces many times and they love it. Dress up a little for day more for evening....More

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
