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 Firebird: A Story Experience – An epic tale of loss, loyalty, wisdom and wonder.
Written by and starring Megan Wells
Directed by Jessie Affelder
Original Music and Sound, Jeff Teppema
In 1990, Megan attended the National Storytelling Festival and encountered the art of Storytelling. Megan began “telling” her own words, thriving on the immediacy and intimacy of the teller/audience relationship. She told at festivals, schools, libraries, corporations, museums, historical societies, clubs and coffeehouses, homes and weddings, as well as on the radio. Megan explored the many genres of storytelling; personal stories, ghost stories, fairy and folk tale, history, legend and myth, myth, myth.
Each story event is approached as a unique encounter between the producing organization, the venue, and the audience. Megan pulls from her repertoire and/or creates story programs to fit the needs and/or theme of the event. Ever attentive to the whisperings of Soul and Myth, Megan’s stories are always filled with heart opening humor and psychological insight. Megan’s devotion is two-fold: craft stories to their deepest creative potential; tell stories in a loving way to people who need them.
