After having taken ballet for years as a child I've been burned out on ballet. La Bayadere, however, interested me and I went to see it. I was impressed by the dancing and amazed by the audience. The story of the ballet was printed in the handout and helped with the storyline. It was a marvelous afternoon at the ballet, the Auditorium Theater was lovely too.

Just went to the Joffrey's Russian Masters performance. Incredible. Such a range of pieces, and the historical background behind the Rite du Printemps dance added so much to the experience. A night at the ballet: beautiful, emotional, elegant, sophisticated... and intellectual!

The standout performance was the second piece-- Adaggio by Khachaturian, choreographed by Yuri Possokhov. It. Was. Amazing. Received a standing ovation, even though it was only halfway through the night. Both dancers were phenomenal, truly physics-defying. And the choreography was so creative-- sexy but highbrow, natural and ethereal but weighty and strong. Just can't get it out of my head.

I came to Chicago specifically to see the Joffrey Ballet perform the Russian Masters. The trip was a result of seeing the Diagalove and the Ballet Russe exhibit at the National Gallery of Art in DC. What a treat. The Auditorium where the Joffrey performs is an attraction itself. The tiles, frescos, lighting and seats are just beautiful. The Joffrey orchestra is the Chicago Philharmonic! It's a WOW. And dancers themselves were magnificent. My sense were overwhelmed..in a good way. I will return to Chicago to see the Joffrey in their home again!
