The renovations at Boston Ballet are complete

Boston Ballet has announced the completion of a suite of renovations to its headquarters at 19 Clarendon Street. The project - led by Jeanne Nutt of the global design firm Gensler (and also a member of the Ballet's Board of Overseers) includes fresh coats of paint, new furniture, a reconfigured lobby and refurbished locker rooms, among other improvements. But perhaps of greatest interest to the Boston community is a new seating system for the Ballet's giant Studio 7 which can accommodate up to 144 guests with excellent sightlines. The space will provide a venue for performances by Boston Ballet School students and Boston Ballet II, as well as presentations of works by Boston Ballet, and demonstrations and lectures. In essence, we just got a brand-new dance theatre. So thank you, Boston Ballet donors!
