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 show was outstanding -The costumes were great -The performances were the best -it was so sweet. The only thing was our seating we had a partial view would have preferred better seats .My girls liked it very much.
Good family outing.
Live narration, intimate seating and a large cast led by a corps of professional dancers make this Nutcracker the ideal family outing for the holidays. The Schaumburg Dance Ensemble’s 18th annual production is a colorful spectacle with vibrant costumes, lavish sets and delightful choreography, held in the beautiful Prairie Center for the Arts, conveniently located with ample free parking on the premises.
