The Rite of Spring

An avant-garde masterpiece, Igor Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring opens with a calm woodwind meditation before it builds to a thrashing fever pitch of dissonance and chromatic coloration. Its sharp rejection of the Romantic tradition caused riots when it premiered in Paris in 1913. Similarly controversial was its content: during a prehistoric ritual, a maiden dances herself to death as a form of religious sacrifice.

The Joffrey Ballet

Hailed as America's company of firsts, the world-renowned Joffrey Ballet has been blazing an artistic trail through media stereotypes since 1956 to redefine the global view of ballet. Through its maiden voyages as the first dance company to perform at the White House and on American television, appear on the cover of Time, and commission a rock 'n' roll ballet, the Joffrey's artistically dynamic works have inspired a broad audience and a major motion picture. Its troupe of classically trained, world-class dancers oozes grace as they execute a diverse repertoire of classical masterpieces and cutting-edge performances. The company's annual Nutcracker performances have garnered global acclaim, and the performance attracts a wide audience in Chicago and around the world during national and international tours.

The Joffrey Ballet also bolsters the Windy City's arts education and dance training through the Joffrey Academy of Dance and community-engagement programs. The Chicago Philharmonic serves as the Joffrey’s official orchestra, bringing its diverse and innovative musical talent to the company's performances.
