What a beautiful venue! They sell three prices for the space, but honestly, it is tough to have a "bad" seat here. Acoustically, the room is great. Stylistically, the balcony is neat, though I got a little bit of vertigo due to the shape of...More

This was our first time here and we saw the Boston Gay Men's Choir and the acoustics were excellent. The venue itself was interesting. The balcony rows are on an angle which is a bit freaky as you're walking in the aisle since it's not...More

My wife and I attended a concert last night. The Hall is beautiful and the acoustics wonderful. I would certainly return for another concert. However, the seating can be very tricky. We sat in the balcony. Had great seats and could see everything. My concern...More

Every day, several times a day, you can find here great performances and most of them are for free. Look for Jordan Hall Calender.

Jordan Hall has wonderful accoustics and sightlines. However, the seating layout is very odd. Sections can be impossible to access without going through a row of seating first (and disturbing everyone who is seated). Be aware, especially if you are handicapped or don't move too...More

The opera was great, but the seats were very uncomfortable, there were too few bathrooms, and the staff seemed unsure. I'm in no hurry to go back.

We attended a free concert that showcased a special youth orchestra that had high school students from across the country. Their performance was excellent. The space was intimate and gorgeous.

I recently attended a Boston Gay Men's Chorus performance here. We had balcony seats. The chorus is 175 men strong, with a small orchestra. It was fabulous. The tickets were affordable ($40) and there isn't a bad seat in the house. Ushers helpful, bathrooms clean....More

is another Boston skyline classic seen throughout the
