Saw Boston Ballet's "Classic Balanchine" at the Boston Opera House during May of 2018, and it was a great experience. I played Classical music when I was younger, but I'd somehow never gone to see an Opera or a Ballet performances? As a venue, the Boston Opera House has a Boston charm and a hall that's acoustically exceptional. The orchestra sounded fantastic. The dancers were amazing athletes and artists as well. I'm very happy I went with my darling wife!

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.

Went to watch Boston Ballet performance. Beautiful architecture on the inside, gift shop & alcohol counters outside the doors, clean restrooms and coffee & snack counters down the stairs. Folks directing you everywhere including the restrooms. And of course awesome performances. Seats are small and seat distance is less so you have to get up every time someone needs to pass through. But that must be how it was made originally and it could mean more people can see the show so I guess it's ok.

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.

Love the history of this building and its unassuming facade on Washington. Once you step through into the lobby, you're reminded of days gone by and a different sense of elegance and class- when people used to dress up for a performance. Seats are comfortable and spacious enough where you don't feel cramped. Drink options are pricey, but kind of what you'd expect.
