Show Information

The Joffrey marks a celebratory return to the stage with original works by choreographers Chanel DaSilva, Joffrey Rehearsal Director Nicolas Blanc, Joffrey Artist Yoshihisa Arai, and a beloved ballet classic by Joffrey co-founder Gerald Arpino.

Birthday Variations
Joffrey co-founder Gerald Arpino used music by Giuseppe Verdi for a commission by Becky D’Angelo in 1986 as a birthday present to her husband Dino, who owned Chicago’s Civic Opera House and loved Verdi’s music. This lively and melodic ballet counts as one of Arpino’s most popular creations.

Swing Low
Original Joffrey Creation
Choreographer Chanel DaSilva finds beauty in the complex and multifaceted experience of what it means to be human with Swing Low, an original creation for five men, set to music by cellist and composer Zoë Keating.

Under the Trees’ Voices
World Premiere
The newest ballet from Joffrey Rehearsal Director Nicolas Blanc channels the power of community in the age of social distancing. This four-movement world premiere for the stage, set to Symphony No. 2 by Italian composer Bosso, imagines a future of hope and unity.

Boléro
World Premiere
Joffrey Company Artist Yoshihisa Arai takes audiences on a journey through time and space with Boléro, featuring 15 dancers and danced to the seminal score of the same name by composer Maurice Ravel. A true Joffrey collaboration, Boléro also features costume designs by Joffrey Artist Temur Suluashvili.
