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

In the lobby, there were kids caroling before the program started. It was a good preview for what was to come, a great performance by the Joffrey Ballet. I just didn't like how some people were clapping at the wierdest times, but that's not Joffrey Ballet's fault.
Create indelible memories with this grand holiday tradition. Treat yourself and your family to a sugarplum delight, with Tchaikovsky’s unforgettable music, enchanting dancing, lavish costumes and Oliver Smith’s sets straight out of a child’s dream. Local children’s choirs and young dancers add to the charm.
