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 theatre was very easy to get to and we had dinner afterwards at a lovely restaurant that their website recommended. Parking was only $9 as the restaurant validated it which was a great deal as we were there for 5 hours. The theatre was beautiful and the ballet was wonderful, the music, sets and dancers were unbelievable! Highly recommend this show.
