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

The show was great (aside from a few untimed dance sequences) and the sets were phenomenal! I hadn't been to The Nutcracker since I was a child and this performance absolutely reminded me how wonderful it is. Any fan of the ballet would enjoy this performance, I believe.
Make it your holiday tradition! Experience Robert Joffrey’s extraordinary production of The Nutcracker! The Tchaikovsky masterpiece, featuring the full Joffrey company, local children’s choruses, and more than 120 young dancers, creates a winter wonderland of beauty, magic and sugarplum delight!
