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.

I can't say that every performance is likable but is always food for conversation. The principal dancers and ballet corps are magnificent. Most seats have good viewing. Parking nearby. Beautiful theater (Boston Opera House).

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.

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

one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston

children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
