The Joffrey Ballet 2023-2024 season at Lyric opera House has just been announced, featuring company debuts and a world premiere.

“Our 2023-2024 season invites audiences to journey with us through some of the most gorgeous worlds created for the ballet, full of love and pain, tragedy and triumph. We begin by honoring the memory of a brilliant artist with the Chicago premiere of Liam Scarlett’s Frankenstein, an epic story told at a grand scale, its delicate emotion rendered in fine detail. Another of Liam’s works, the breathtakingly beautiful Hummingbird, finds exceptional company in the works of Andrew McNicol’s layered and sophisticated Yonder Blue and a powerful world premiere from Stina Quagebeur. Through a reunion with a long-time partner, Chicago audiences will again tread the fantastical realm of Alexander Ekman’s Midsummer Night’s Dream in all of its splendor and strangeness. This season, audiences will find spectacle, intimacy, and above all, humanity at the ballet.”
