What You'll Get
Audiences have always been fascinated by pairs, from the vaudeville acts of Laurel and Hardy to the crime-fighting melodies of Batman and Garfunkel. Watch dazzling pas de deux unfold with today's Groupon to see Swan Lake at Rialto Square Theatre in Joliet. For $19, you get one ticket for main-floor seating in rows Q–DD of section A on Wednesday, January 25, at 7:30 p.m. (up to a $46.25 value, including all ticketing fees).
The State Ballet Theatre of Russia brings its troupe of internationally acclaimed dancers from Voronezh to the Rialto Square Theatre for a classic rendition of Swan Lake. Dancing to Tchaikovsky's iconic score, the star-studded cast unleashes a traditionally Russian take on the story of Prince Siegfried and Odette, a beautiful woman transformed into a swan by an evil sorcerer who needs feathers for his endless pillow fights.
Main-floor seating grants unobstructed views of en pointe dancers sparkling in black and white costumes across the historic stage. Celebrating its 85th anniversary the Rialto Square Theatre, dubbed the "Jewel of Joliet," sheathes guests in ornate European architecture, including a majestic inner lobby designed after the Palace of Versailles's Hall of Mirrors, minus the beret-distorting funhouse effects.

About Rialto Square Theatre
Designed to mimic the French palace of Versailles, Rialto Square Theatre's magnificent interior awes showgoers with its gilded opulence. In the regal inner lobby, a 20-foot, 250-light chandelier—dubbed The Duchess—illuminates a circular series of delicate reliefs that depict allegories of man triumphing through labor and scenes from Greek mythology. A scaled-down replica of Paris's Arc de Triomphe leads from the lobby to the rotunda, adding to the space's grandeur and commemorating miniature Napoleon's victory at the adorable Battle of miniature Austerlitz.
