About Boston Opera House
When the Boston Opera House first opened its doors 84 years ago as the lavish B.F. Keith Memorial movie palace and vaudeville theater, the “Boston Globe” remarked that it was “so magnificent that it kind of takes your breath away for a while.” A $54 million renovation brought the theater into the modern era, and today the majestic New England theater features an active program of top touring Broadway shows like “Wicked” and “The Book of Mormon” along with seasonal family shows like “The Nutcracker.” Located in the heart of the lively Boston Theatre District, the Boston Opera House is also the permanent home of the world-renowned Boston Ballet.
Latecomers will be seated at the discretion of management and only at certain intervals in the performance. It is highly recommended that you arrive 30-45 minutes prior to curtain. Regardless of age, everyone who enters the theatre must have a ticket. Lap-sitting is not permitted. No persons under two years of age are admitted into the theatre. Boston Ballet welcomes children and families to our performances. Many children can remain quiet, attentive, and seated for a performance, but you know your child best. Call the box office for suggestions about appropriate productions for children.
