Very dramatic! As good as I hoped for and better than I expected in every way - the music, the production, the performance.

Great experience. The whole ballet was in an early 20th century style. A lot of nods to Martha Graham and Stravinsky if not outright imitation. Very well executed. The lead was probably the least interesting dancer which I imagine is due more...continued

The Joffrey's Othello production choreographed by Lar Lubovitch with music by Oscar winning composer Elliot Goldenthal is what full length ballets should be about. A familiar tale about love, intrigue and revenge this Shakespearean story...continued

Fabrice Calmels as Othello was spell binding and cast perfectly for the role. He is 6'6" and dominates just as he should, yet has unbelievable grace and range. He's a star.

When was the last time you remember an audience jumping to it's feet at the close of a dance performance? Faultless execution of brilliant choreography. Contemporary music was fuel for this passionate story well told. I'll be talking about this...continued

It was both a joyous event to view and an honor to know that "Othello" is being retired, as it were, here in Chicago with my two Grandchildren.
Damion(15)and Mariah(10)were very much entralled with the story from the Bard, of course, and also with...continued

Joffrey Ballet rises to the top again -- choreography, costumes, scenery, dancers -- all the best. The Auditorium Theatre is in itself beauty unlimited.
