American Ballet Theatre – "Romeo and Juliet"

Apr 15-18, 2021

Overview

America’s National Ballet Company®, “one of the best and most competitive dance companies in the world” (Forbes), returns to the Auditorium Theatre for its third engagement as a Visiting Resident Company with Kenneth MacMillan’s iconic production of Romeo and Juliet. Performed in Chicago for the first time in 13 years, MacMillan’s take on the tragic tale “catches the essence of Shakespeare in a way that almost trumps the play,” revealing “what dance can do better than many words; it channels emotion and sculpts the trajectory of a tragedy with unparalleled clarity” (The Guardian).
