I took my 8 year old granddaughter to a matinee performance of Swan Lake last Saturday, and it was magical! She and all the other little prima ballerinas were dressed to perfection, long dresses, sequined shoes, a spectacle to behold. The ballet itself was marvelous,...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.

Watched Nutcracker for the first time. The show was great and the Theater was beautiful. Their charges were little high than the others but the show was worth it.

I love the Nutcracker and over the years have not only performed in but attended many companies performing this ballet. The Boston Ballet company, in my opinion, is by far the best performance of this show. The costumes are wonderful and the choreography is incredible....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
