Boston Ballet readies itself for the premiere season at The Boston Opera House with the completion of the orchestra pit renovation at the historic theatre. The company’s move to The Boston Opera House for all season performances and the holiday classic The Nutcracker, marks a significant milestone in Boston Ballet’s history and the continued revitalization of Boston’s Theater District and Downtown Crossing.
“Boston Ballet’s move to The Boston Opera House is a major step in the company’s history and for the cultural community in Boston,” said Executive Director Barry Hughson. “I’m thrilled to see the orchestra pit restored to its original glory and am excited about what it will bring to the dancers’ and the audience experience at the theatre. Boston Ballet made a commitment to the restoration and enhancement of this theatre, and it is a commitment which will give back to the city of Boston for years to come.”
