…knocks you out with the sheer beauty,
power and modernity of its dancing.”

Celebrate the 100th anniversary of one of most magnificent dance and music masterpieces ever: “The Rite of Spring”, performed by the Joffrey Ballet.
Sparking a riot that gave birth to modern music and dance, the original Stravinsky and Nijinsky production premiered in Paris in 1913 and forever changed the way audiences hear and see.
The Joffrey Ballet has been hailed as “America’s Ballet Company of Firsts”. Forty-six of their superb dancers will perform “The Rite of Spring”, paired with thrilling contemporary works by two of the best choreographic minds of the 21st century. Don’t miss the first dance company to perform at the White House at Jacqueline Kennedy’s invitation, the first American company to visit Russia, the first to commission a rock ‘n roll ballet and the only dance company to appear on the cover of Time Magazine. .
