Performed by THE JOFFREY BALLET
The Joffrey Ballet returns to Los Angeles with a stunning take on the perennial classic, Romeo & Juliet. Much more than the archetypal tragic story of forbidden love, this reimagined tale takes place amid the tumult of 20th century Italian politics and sets Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers against a backdrop of politics and war.
The ballet begins in Mussolini-era 1930s Italy and spans three decades of political strife, illustrating that generations of families can be affected by the decisions of their forefathers—a lesson especially relevant to modern audiences. The Joffrey Ballet’s magnificent dancers are propelled by Sergei Prokofiev’s lushly dramatic 1935 score and the strikingly modern costumes of Tatyana Van Walsum.
Surrender to Krzysztof Pastor’s critically-acclaimed retelling of Shakespeare’s iconic tale for modern times. Blurring the lines of dance and violence, this is impossible love at its most defiant.
In a timeless story drawn from mythology, Orpheus descends into the underworld to retrieve his lost Eurydice. But first he must tame the Furies and face Love’s challenge. Gluck’s groundbreaking opera, which bridges the musical worlds of Handel and Mozart with its ornate vocal lines and flowing melodies, forever changed the face of opera with its bold emphasis on dramatic clarity and emotional strength.
Director, choreographer and designer John Neumeier, a living legend in the dance world, creates a new production that showcases the virtuoso dancers of The Joffrey Ballet.
Eminent Danish maestro Blomstedt has programmed a pair of beloved second symphonies (in the same key) that differ dramatically from one another, resulting in an unexpected but richly rewarding symbiosis.

Orlando di Lasso | Lagrime di San Pietro
From the creative mind of legendary director Peter Sellars comes his very first a cappella staging and most personal work to date. Orlando di Lasso knew that Lagrime was to be the last piece he would ever compose, and so he packed every measure with an emotionally charged texture that channeled all of his pain and remorse into a towering work of beauty.
Twenty-one singers transform this sweeping a cappella Renaissance masterpiece – committed to memory and dramatically staged – into an overwhelmingly emotional performance piece. Set to the poetry of Luigi Tansillo (1510-1568), “I accept responsibility” is the fundamental theme of this work depicting the seven stages of grief that St. Peter experienced after disavowing his knowledge of Jesus on the day he was arrested.
Sellars translates Lagrime through a contemporary lens, suggesting a powerful allegory that by taking responsibility and facing our regrets head-on, we can forge a more resolved and more fulfilling future – the perfect antidote for the bitter politics and walls that divide.
