The dancers were remarkably skilled, dancing piece after piece without error and with amazing grace. The costumes were gorgeous and the venue stunning. It was a lovely holiday treat!

I did attend this event. I have to admit, I thought that the seats I had purchased were in a better location than they were. They were advertised as $100 seats that cost goldstar members $50. I brought my daughter for her 18th birthday and...continued

I have seen the Nutcracker several times over the course of my life. There are certain parts I look forward to, one of which is the Russian dancers. I was disappointed in their change of choreography. Also, I realize everyone is cutting back in...continued

The show was great, the music was beautiful though it was difficult to hear due to all the audience clapping at most unusual times.

The dancers were lovely and it was a great story. It has been updated since I went when I was a kid, the stage settings were new and exciting.

The music, costumes, dancing were wonderful but not quite as wonderful as last year.
The Opera House setting is perfect and a joy to behold. However, exiting from the balcony took about 15 minutes of shuffling along with the crowd.. woe to us...continued

This was my second year seeing the Boston Ballet Nutcracker. Once again, it was an enjoyable evening - truly puts you in the holiday spirit. The dancing and costumes are wonderful - as is the venue.

Loved it! Took my parents who are in their 70s & the kids - boys 8 &9 who also loved it. A must-see this holiday season for the whole family. Great sets, superior dance & great little additions by the choreographer. You won't regret it.
