We look forward to welcoming you to the theater and helping make the most of your Joffrey experience.

As resident dance company of Lyric Opera House, the Joffrey presents performances of the highest quality, in one of the most renowned venues in the world. Here is some information we hope you will find helpful in planning your visit.

Your Safety

As live performances return, the Joffrey is committed to the health and safety of our audience, artists, technicians, administrative staff, and all of the communities we serve throughout each season.

Directions and Parking

The Joffrey’s performance home at Lyric Opera House is located in downtown Chicago. Whether you plan to arrive via car or public transit, we'll help you find the way from your home to the stage.

Meet the Artists

Meet the Artists discussions take place before select performances during the season. Seating is unreserved, but a ticket for that day’s performance is required. Talks begin a half hour before each performance and doors open approximately 15 minutes before the start of the talks.

Restaurants and Dining

Whether you're looking for an elegant way to begin your night at the ballet, a casual pre-matinee bite, or an exclusive members-only experience, Lyric’s on-site restaurants offer a convenient and delicious accompaniment to your performance.
