The 2021–2022 Season

  • ‘Of Mice and Men’ and ‘Serenade’

    The Joffrey’s spring double-bill features Cathy Marston’s world premiere adaptation of Steinbeck’s tender tale of friendship, perseverance, and sacrifice, with an original score by Academy Award®-nominated composer Thomas Newman, along with the Joffrey premiere of George Balanchine’s Serenade, the choreographer’s first ballet created in America in 1934.

  • ‘Don Quixote’

    A family-friendly ballet full of bravery, fantasy, and love. Yuri Possokhov’s fresh interpretation of this revered ballet classic centers on Don Quixote, an aging and eccentric nobleman, who imagines himself to be a valiant knight.
