The Joffrey Ballet opens its 2018-2019 season with Christopher Wheeldon’s blockbuster Swan Lake. Art intertwines with life in this modern re-telling of one of the most famous ballets of all time. Set in the studios of the Paris Opera Ballet, a company dancer falls in love with his beautiful partner, a star ballerina who is being pursued by an arts patron with bad intentions. A ballet-within-a-ballet, Wheeldon's version combines classical elements with a touch of fantasy, as lavish sets and breathtaking choreography take hold in this timeless story danced to Tchaikovsky's mesmerizing score performed live by the Chicago Philharmonic.
