In his 20 years as Artistic Director of Boston Ballet, Mikko Nissinen has crafted a passionate legacy in dance. He challenges perceptions, awakening audiences to the wonder of the art form that emanates vibrancy, energy, relevancy, and an endless propensity to evolve. He offers us experience beyond expectation.

Mikko’s impact is mirrored in the remarkable repertoire he has curated for Boston Ballet and the boundary-pushing excellence he has brought to Boston through global talent and commissions from innovators across the arts.

The 2022 Boston Ballet Ball will celebrate Mikko and 20 years of leadership with a sensory feast of tastes, sounds, sights, and movement. In honor of Mikko and this remarkable milestone, we invite you to join us for a glance back and look toward our future in the dynamic landscape of international dance.



The Boston Ballet Ball is an exciting event that involves many dancers in our company both in performance and participation. The following additional entrance requirements and safety measures are in place for the Ball to provide the best possible outcome for all attending our in-person events, and to responsibly support health and safety for the remainder of our spring season on the Citizens Bank Opera House stage.

In advance of the festivities, all guests attending the Boston Ballet Ball will be required to provide proof of vaccination and a negative COVID-19 test (PCR within 72 hours OR rapid antigen within 24 hours) before entering the venue.  No exceptions or exemptions will be provided.  Masks will be optional.

Boston Ballet will be working with Harvard/MIT digital platform Clear Bill of Health to collect vaccination, booster, and negative test information prior to the event to provide as seamless an experience as possible for our guests. Be on the lookout in your email for when the portal opens to upload your information.

Please note our policies are subject to change in alignment with the CDC guidelines. Any updates will be communicated directly to guests via email.


We will be providing valet service. The garage for valet is located at 10 World Trade Center Boulevard, Boston. This is the 3rd floor of the garage where the skybridge takes you right into the hotel. Should you not be driving, please be dropped off at the front of the hotel 450 Summer Street, Boston. Regardless of how you arrive, hotel and Boston Ballet staff will be there to greet you and direct you to cocktails.

The audience connection to the art is what truly brings it to life.
