This is the program that takes the Joffrey season to new heights. Expect surprise in a program of premieres as three of America’s boundary-pushing choreographers draw you in to a marvelous experience. Edwaard Liang returns with another breathtaking world premiere after touching audiences and impressing critics with the 2008 Prince Prize winner Age of Innocence. Yuri Possokhov, the former Bolshoi Ballet star, is known for bringing new power to classic ballet. This premiere is his first work for the Joffrey. It is commissioned for the Joffrey Ballet by Bruce Sagan and Bette Cerf Hill in appreciation for many years of pleasure and joy. In its Joffrey premiere, Night by Julia Adam, is a dance of flight inspired by the dreamscape paintings of Marc Chagall. With a commissioned score by Matthew Pierce, Adam creates the impression of flying, falling and being chased.
