Boston Ballet

The Boston Ballet has been delighting audiences with elegant dance performances since 1963 when it was given a Ford Grant to establish the first professional ballet company in Boston (the company had opened as a ballet school just several years before). In the five decades since, the Ballet has hosted such luminary talents as Laura Young, Nina Ananiashvili, Rudolf Nureyev, and even the great Mikhail Baryshnikov performing classic ballets such as Swan Lake, The Sleeping Beauty, and The Nutcracker. The Boston Ballet even hosted the “Glastnost Swan Lake” in 1990, which saw the American company work together with the Soviet Union’s Kirov Ballet in a partnership symbolic of the thawing of long-frozen international relations at that time.

How did Boston Ballet rise to fame?

Boston Ballet's journey to prominence began in 1956 when E. Virginia Williams moved her ballet school to a more prominent location in Boston, signaling the start of an institution that would grow to become a cornerstone of the ballet community. In 1958, Williams formed The New England Civic Ballet from her school, laying the foundation for what would become Boston Ballet. This group initially performed regionally but gained recognition for their performances, including a notable three-act Nutcracker. By 1962, the group had evolved into a semi-professional company and adopted the name Boston Ballet. Their participation in the Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival that year marked a significant step in their journey. The pivotal moment came in 1963 when a Ford Foundation grant of $144,000 was awarded, establishing Boston Ballet as Boston's first professional ballet company. This grant was part of a larger initiative to support the arts, recommended by George Balanchine, who also served as Boston Ballet's artistic advisor, significantly contributing to the company's development. Throughout the 1970s and 1980s, Boston Ballet's reputation grew internationally, with performances in Italy, China, and London, and collaborations with notable figures such as Rudolf Nureyev. The company's repertoire expanded to include major classical and contemporary works, enhancing its status within the ballet world. The 1990s saw further expansion and relocation to their current headquarters, reflecting their established presence in the arts community. The early 2000s were marked by significant additions to the repertoire, including works by George Balanchine and Jorma Elo, the company's resident choreographer. International tours, including a notable first tour to Seoul, South Korea, showcased the company's versatility and global appeal. Since 2010, Boston Ballet has continued to maintain a diverse repertoire, with classic and contemporary works appealing to a wide audience. Their annual performance of "The Nutcracker" since 1963 has become a cherished tradition. The company's success is a testament to its enduring commitment to excellence in ballet, contributing significantly to the arts landscape both locally and internationally.
