 The 2014-2015 subscription season includes:

 

SWAN LAKE (October 15-26, 2014)

Choreography: Christopher Wheeldon Music: Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky

Wheeldon reimagines ballet’s greatest love story, setting it in the stunning, Degas-inspired studios of the Paris Opera Ballet of the 19th century. Combining classical elements with a modern vision, Wheeldon has created a stunning retelling of one of the most famous ballets of all time. Joffrey Premiere

 

UNIQUE VOICES (February 11-22, 2015)

Maninyas

Choreographer: Stanton Welch Music: Ross Edwards

Contemporary in design and abstract in nature, Maninyas is a powerful, exotic and passionate ballet that explores the sometimes frightening process of revealing oneself layer by layer in a relationship. Joffrey Premiere

The Man in Black

Choreographer: James Kudelka Music: Johnny Cash

Six of Johnny Cash’s later songs are given visual resonance in a suite of dances for an ensemble of three men and a woman, all in cowboy boots. The choreography riffs off several popular American country-western dance styles. Like the songs that inspired it, The Man in Black is an ode to the human spirit, vulnerable yet resilient. Joffrey Premiere

Tulle

Choreographer: Alexander Ekman Music: Mikael Karlsson

On the heels of Ekman’s wildly successful Episode 31, we present a second ballet by the young Swedish choreographer. Featuring the full Joffrey company, voice-over commentary and three large onstage LED screens, this is a ballet about ballet. Part homage and part tongue-in-cheek critique, Ekman displays his fresh wit and serious craft. Joffrey Premiere

 

NEW WORKS (April 22-May 3, 2015)

In Creases

Choreographer: Justin Peck Music: Philip Glass

Still a dancer with New York City Ballet, Justin Peck has launched his choreographic career with a “buzz” rarely found these days in dance circles. Praised for poetic structure, musicality and invention, The New York Times described In Creases as a “dreamscape that heightens the progress and colors of its score.” Joffrey Premiere

Evenfall

Choreographer: Nicholas Blanc Music: Max Richter

Created for Joffrey Ballet dancers by one of our ballet masters, this lyrical piece follows the thread of poetry running through the lives of a couple at the beginning of their romance, and in their autumn years. As the poet suggests, life is a collection of memories. Joffrey Premiere

World Premiere (Sponsored by a generous gift from The Mayer and Morris Kaplan Family Foundation.)

Choreographer: Ashley Page

A winner of many prestigious dance awards, Page is known for his daring collaborations with visual artists and contemporary composers. Though drawn from the discipline of ballet, his bold choreography explores new avenues for dance.

 

Plus add on these two not-to-be-missed programs:

 

STORIES IN MOTION (September 18-21, 2014)

special non-subscription performance – subscribers save 50%

Prodigal Son

Choreography: George Balanchine Music: Sergei Prokofiev

Based on the biblical parable about a young man who leaves home, this is a tale of sin and redemption from one of the master choreographers of all time.

Lilac Garden

Choreography: Anthony Tudor Music: Ernest Chausson

Tudor’s masterpiece explores the conflicting emotions of a young woman, trapped by the strictures of Edwardian culture and forced to give up the young man she loves to marry another she doesn’t.

RAkU

Choreography: Yuri Possokhov Music: Shinji Eshima

Possokhov uses the burning of the Golden Pavilion in Kyoto, Japan, as the point of departure for a story of love, treachery, separation and tragedy. Set in Japan’s past, a warrior and his beloved princess are pulled apart by the schemes of a jealousy-crazed monk. Joffrey Premiere

 

THE NUTCRACKER (December 5-28) special non-subscription performance
Collaboration conceived and directed: Robert Joffrey Music: Peter llyich Tchaikovsky
Don’t miss the glorious Chicago holiday tradition: America’s #1 Nutcracker! A grand production with Tchaikovsky’s glorious score played live by a full orchestra.
