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

Fantastic! Saw it 15 yeqars ago. Tweeked it a bit but made some nice changes. Such talent. They gave the musicians more time in the spotlight, this time. Could see it time and again.
Only shame was there was not a full house. Disappointing turnout. Great Value at full price, but a real bargain with Gold Star.
