The world famous Joffrey Ballet stages a bold contemporary version of one of Shakespeare's most beloved tragedies, Romeo and Juliet. The Chicago Philharmonic will be on hand to perform Sergei Prokofiev's powerfully dramatic score, which includes the famous "Dance of the Knights" (aka "Montagues and Capulets"). This timeless story of two young lovers caught between their warring families unfolds against a striking multimedia backdrop, which depicts three different political eras of the 20th century. Choreographed by Krzysztof Pastor, director of the Polish National Ballet, this vibrant new telling of Romeo and Juliet is "stunning ... truly magnificent" (London's The Telegraph). Learn More

These young performers are so nimble. It's incredible to watch how they contort their bodies. WE enjoyed the show and there is something special about watching it under a tent. I don't know that the prices I got on line were any less expensive than what I would have paid at the box. I also think I would have gotten better seats if I had purchased the tickets at the box.
This jaw dropping, eye popping, heart stopping and breathtakingly beautiful show is fun for all ages. Featuring such exotic acts as the “Roman Wheel,” “Diabolo,” the “Spanish Web” and the “Russian Barre,” this dazzling showcase of strength, agility and grace is meticulously choreographed to a specially produced musical score and performed with ingenious stagecraft, offering audiences a full-scale theatrical experience. Full of energy, color, raw power and fluid beauty, Cirque Shanghai Bright Spirit is a soaring celebration of life appearing only in Chicago and only at Navy Pier for this limited summer engagement.
