The Joffrey Ballet presents

October 17-28, 2018
Choreographer: © Christopher Wheeldon
Music: Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky

Art intertwines with life in Wheeldon's modern re-telling of one of the most famous ballets of all time. Set in the studios of the Paris Opera Ballet, a company dancer falls in love with his beautiful partner, a star ballerina who is being pursued by an arts patron with bad intentions. A ballet-within-a-ballet, Wheeldon's version combines classical elements with a touch of fantasy, as lavish sets and breathtaking choreography take hold in this timeless story danced to Tchaikovsky's mesmerizing score.
