Boston Ballet Message to our Community

Boston Ballet is committed to the health, safety, and well-being of our community. We have made the following changes to our upcoming programs, events, and class schedules.

Updated as of Mar 23, 2020

Performances and Events 

All institutional events and gatherings through April 26 have been canceled or postponed; this includes upcoming spring 2020 BB@home performances.

All performances of Carmen have been postponed to August 20–30, 2020​.   If you are a Carmen ticket holder, no action is needed on your part. We are pleased to reissue your ticket(s) for the same seats, and the corresponding date, during the rescheduled performances. (For example, tickets to opening night will be rescheduled to the new opening night on Thursday, Aug 20.) If you prefer to exchange your tickets for a different Carmen performance date, please contact the Box Office at  or 617.695.6955. We are responding as quickly as possible and greatly appreciate your patience. 

All upcoming BB@home performances for the remainder of this season are canceled and ticket holders will receive an email regarding their ticket exchange options.  

All institutional events and gatherings have been canceled through Sunday, April 26.  

We currently anticipate proceeding with all remaining productions and events this season, and will share updates as we continue to monitor the evolving situation. 

Boston Ballet School 

Based on the advice of health care providers, Boston Ballet School will be closing effective immediately. All classes will be suspended through Apr 26. Should it be safe to do so, BBS will reopen all studios for all levels on Mon, Apr 27. Any questions or concerns should be addressed to a Studio Administrator at 617.456.6333,

Boston Ballet School will be distributing virtual learning plans to keep students engaged during this period.  


Due to current COVID-19 implications and necessary precautions, all Boston Ballet Company, BBII, Post Graduate program auditions are cancelled. 

Your Continued Support 

As a non-profit arts organization, Boston Ballet depends on the generosity of our patrons to present dance on stage, teach ballet, and host events in our community. We anticipate a significant loss of revenue as a result of COVID-19. If you believe in the power of human connection through dance, please consider making a tax-deductible donation to Boston Ballet today.

Please enjoy a variety of behind-the-scenes videos, performance clips, and articles. This will be updated regularly so come back to see what is new.

Thank you for your support during this difficult and unprecedented event. We regret the inconvenience to you and very much look forward to welcoming you back soon. 

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