Hamlet is one of the greats of the theatrical cannon. This year marks the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death, and celebrates his life and works.

BalletX: World Music/CRASHarts BalletX: World Music/CRASHarts at Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston
October 21 – 22
I love seeing dance at the ICA, the music sounds great: Jeff Buckley, Beirut, Klezmer Juice? But mostly I just love how intimate seeing dance at the ICA is. Enjoy the waterfront before the show. Get a drink at Gather. Awesome.
Beethoven’s Eroica: Handel and Haydn Society at Symphony Hall
October 28 – 30 | BosTix Deal Available
On the other end of the spectrum from the intimate setting of dance at the ICA, is seeing an orchestra perform in Symphony Hall. H+H consistently brings Classical and Baroque alive. Also, H+H was founded in 1815, and is considered the oldest continuously performing arts organization in the United States. How cool is that?
