For more than a half-century, The Joffrey Ballet has been an American ballet treasure. Last seen in New Orleans in 2006 at Dixon Hall, this sensational company returns to close the main stage season in grand style. The elegant program highlights the bold and refreshing talents of rising choreographic star Edwaard Liang with Age of Innocence, an emotionally-charged new work inspired by the social complexities of life in the era of Jane Austen. Also on the program is Jerome Robbins’ enchanting romantic masterwork In the Night, a passionate ballet featuring a series of three pas de deux set to the live accompaniment of Chopin's Nocturnes.
"Age of Innocence has all the hallmarks of a newly minted masterpiece." —Chicago Sun-Times
