Very dramatic! As good as I hoped for and better than I expected in every way - the music, the production, the performance.

The Joffrey's Othello production choreographed by Lar Lubovitch with music by Oscar winning composer Elliot Goldenthal is what full length ballets should be about. A familiar tale about love, intrigue and revenge this Shakespearean story...continued

The show was GREAT! I am so sorry I can't see it again. The dancers, the colors, the passion - I loved it!! Not to mention the guy that plays Othello is a hunk!

About the Ticket Supplier: Joffrey Ballet

Robert Joffrey and Gerald Arpino’s uniquely American vision of dance first took form in 1956. The original company consisted of six dynamic and highly individual dancers. While Robert Joffrey stayed in New York to teach ballet classes and earn money to pay the dancers’ salaries, Gerald Arpino led the troupe across America’s heartland, in a station wagon that pulled a U-Haul trailer. Their repertoire of original ballets by Robert Joffrey set them apart from other small touring companies, who often performed scaled-down versions of the classics. From the beginning, Joffrey and Arpino wanted a company that came out of their roots, out of America.
