Originally called The Met, Boston's premier performing arts venue started life as a glittering movie "cathedral", dripping in chandeliers and marble. It's splendour faded somewhat in the 1960s and 70s, but a ambitious restoration, funded in large part by the Wang family, brought it back to its former glories. It now plays host to dozens of broadway shows, operas and concerts every year.

Elf: The Musical is the hilarious tale of Buddy, a young orphan who accidentally crawls into Santa's sack of gifts and is taken to the North Pole. Buddy is raised unaware that he is actually a human, until his enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to face the truth. The heartwarming musical follows Buddy on a task of impossible size - can he reunite his new family in happiness, as well as bring much-needed Christmas spirit to the city of New York?

March 17-20, 2016

The 56-year old AA American Dance Theater has performed for an estimated 23 million people in 48 states, as well as 71 countries on six continents. Often engaged as an ambassador for modern American dance, the troupe saw its first such engagement in 1962 as part of John F Kennedy's south east Asian and Australian tour. Whilst its repertoire is known primarily for its jazz influences, chief creative director Robert Battle has added to the dances by welcoming collaborations with other eminent choreographers, which reflects the company's ever-expanding body of work.

The Wizard Of Oz

Andrew Lloyd Webber's lauded production of The Wizard Of Oz is an enchanting adaptation of the perennial MGM movie classic starring Judy Garland, totally re-imagined for the stage.

Join Dorothy and Toto as they meet a motley crew of lost characters, all with one thing in mind; to gain their hearts' desire from the great Oz.
