Including our traditional audience as well as working to develop new audiences.

Completely renovated in 2002, this theatre is beautiful! You could easily spend 30 minutes enjoying the lobby before the show. Chairs are small as you might imagine theatre chairs to be, but the theatre itself is not too big so there aren't any bad views. Acoustics are amazing and the shows are always very high quality. The Opera House is the new home of the Boston Ballet program so you're always going to have high caliber talent as long as Boston Ballet is performing. Worth the visit to check it out and worth the money to see a show.

Whenever I visit, it is always amazing. This theater right in the heart of downtown is a perfect location whether you drive or take public transportation. Several parking areas are within a few minutes walk. I like using online discount apps like Spot Hero to get a reserved space. The theater is old,majestic and has many seating options. Though the seats like many older buildings are small and fit folks size 10 and under comfortably, you do have enough standing room to stretch during intermissions. The bathrooms can get crowded so use before the show or head there just before the last curtain call. The sound system is fantastic and so is the lighting. You can generally make out the faces of actors from any seat and there are several stairs to the balcony area. No matter will enjoy the show.

Went to see "On Your Feet". Great venue, sound and sight. Beautiful theater and great architecture experience. Bought Poland Springs water at intermission for $4.50. Have paid $3.34 for a case of 24 at the grocery store. But you need to expect this at such a nice place.

This is a beautiful facility with good acoustics and reasonably comfortable seats. Views to the stage are pretty good even from the cheap seats. There aren't enough stalls for the ladies' rooms of course, but they have an attendant who flags open ones and keeps things moving during intermission.

Great venue for ballet and broadway shows. Get a seat in the center section orchestra or anywhere in the balcony and you'll have a decent view. Plentiful women's restrooms with good system to make sure there are no vacant stalls.
