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 sheer technical finesse of Alfonso’s company, combined with a performance style that blends ensemble perfectionism with strong individual expression and a unique warmth and unforced sensuality, is impressive.” —Chicago Sun-Times
A colorful, highly energized all-female company of 18 dancers, accompanied by a live band, Dance Cuba expresses the uniqueness of Cuban culture, combining flamenco, ballet and contemporary dance with Spanish and Afro-Cuban rhythms. For their Chicago engagement, they will perform Fuerza y Compás (Strength & Measure), showcasing the dancers’ grace, strength and technical precision.
