The Joyce Theater Foundation is thrilled to bring The Joffrey Ballet to New York to perform Krzysztof Pastor’s magnificent Romeo & Juliet. This magnificent re-mounting of his 2008 production had its U.S. premiere in Chicago with the Joffrey in spring 2014. Set in 20th century Italian society, this updated version of the classic story is especially relevant for contemporary audiences as it goes beyond an exploration of family strife to position Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers against a backdrop of complicated politics and war, and is propelled by Sergei Prokofiev’s lushly dramatic 1935 score.
