Spring is when a young man’s desire turns to … ballet? The Joffrey Ballet’s season concludes with a repertory program of three sensual, neoclassical works in “Spring Desire.” Presented in 10 performances, the program heralds the return of Edward Liang’s “Age of Innocence” set to the music of Philip Glass and Thomas Newman. Also featured is Jerome Robbins’ “In the Night” danced to Frederick Chopin’s piano nocturnes.
