Best of Boston

2014 Best Dance Troupe

Boston Ballet

The 50th season launched with a bang—including a bang-up London tour that deserved every “favourable” review it received. The company then gave Boston a free “Night of Stars” gala on the Common. At the Opera House, it looked equally at home in the classical Cinderella, George Balanchine’s neoclassical Jewels, and Jirí Kylián’s quirky Bella Figura. Capping off the season this past June with a traveling tour to Washington and New York, the Boston Ballet is solidly placed as one of the top five companies in the U.S.
