The Joffrey Ballet 2019-2020 season is filled with premieres and audience favorites, all accompanied by the Chicago Philharmonic. For the first time on a Chicago stage will be Cathy Marsten‘s Jane Eyre which actually makes its North American debut in June 2019 when the American Ballet Theatre performs it in New York. This program will be done in partnership with ABT.
The company’s mixed program in February 2020 also features Chi-Town debuts: Justin Peck‘s The Times Are Racing which is a ballet danced in sneakers and Mono Lisa and The Sofa by Israeli choreographer Itzik Galili. Included also is a world premiere – Bliss! by Stephanie Martinez.
