So I thought it would be a great experience for the family. Well some of us enjoyed it so much the costumes the dancers and the music wonderful. The other half of the family one slept and the others were bored and cranky. so know your crowd.

The dancers are so talented and their physique is art in itself. I find it theraputic and relaxing. It sexy too so why not have a nice date before/after dining.

Our daughter and her fiancé got us gift tickets for the Auditorium Theater to the closing performance of this new interpretation of a 20th century classic. In fact, we've seen other versions of Romeo & Juliet performed by the Joffrey at the Auditorium. This one shines for its originality; but, you really do need to be well familiar with Shakespeare's...

If you are lucky you'll see children dancing enthusiastically after they have been transported by a company that knows how to move.

When my wife and I moved here we decided to see all the best there is to offer, naturally hearing of the Joffrey Ballet. After the first event we were hooked. Although it a long event for some, it was worth every penny (consequently became season ticket holders). I believe this to be one of the best ballets in the... More

As season subscriber I love the Joffrey Ballet but as a ballet enthusiast I have seen better so unfortunately I have to dock them a star for that. Guess it's hard to complete when I grew up watching Baryshnikov every summer. That being said, I admire their range of performances every season. If you want to see ballet and you... More

We try to go to the Joffrey at least once a year and have yet to be disappointed. Their contemporary choreography shows highlight some of the best work by recent artists and are refreshing to see. Despite some low points in the shows, the high points definitely make up for it. Also, the Auditorium Theater is a beautiful venue.

I travelled to Joffrey from Ohio. Worth the trip. The theatre itself is beautiful, although in need of refurbishing. The Joffrey is a wonderful ballet company. I attended a Saturday evening show wiith my three kids, La Bayadere. It was very good, but would have been better with seats closer to the stage for the kids to see all the... More

As always, this ballet gives an outstanding performance. I suggest the Nutcracker while in the city at Christmas-time.

Took our three granddaughters to see The Nutcracker. The dancing, orchestra, and theater are all excellent. Our granddaughter were enthralled with the performance. It was an unforgettable experience for all of us!
