Many big cities have ballet, and I have visited a lot in the USA and in Europe. I have to say that I was not disappointed by the Boston Ballet company. If you enjoy the ballet, do support the local Boston Ballet company.

While in Boston my wife and I went to the Boston Ballet to see the Nutcracker. WOW! First of all, the Ballet House is magnificent. The acoustics are perfection. The performance was outstanding. Enough superlatives? Anyway, everything was great. Next year if in Boston, make...More

I might not be a critic of the ballet, but from what I can tell, and to a casual observer, the Boston Ballet's performance of the 'Nutcracker' was excellent. It moved quickly, told the story with a bit of humor and was accompanied by a...More

It's been a few years since I've seen the Nutcracker, the last time being a dismal production at Lincoln Center in NYC. Fortunately, Boston Ballet's production is charming and brings a Boston tradition back to life while maintaining some of the links to years past....More

After an opera visit to the Metropolitan in New York I was enchanted with the Boston Opera House. What a wonderful atmosphere and sense of grandeur. The Nutcracker itself was a delightful visual experience with beautiful dancing by all the cast but in particular the...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
