Dorothy Chandler Pavilion
The Music Center welcomes the return of The Joffrey Ballet to Los Angeles for a contemporary rendition of Shakespeare’s timeless classic with the West Coast premiere of Romeo & Juliet. Performances will take place at The Music Center’s Dorothy Chandler Pavilion on March 9, 11 & 17, 2018. Part of the 15th season of Glorya Kaufman Presents Dance at The Music Center (Dance at The Music Center), this critically acclaimed retelling of Shakespeare’s iconic tale is set amid the tumult of 20th century Italy, beginning with Mussolini-era 1930s and spanning three decades of political strife. Choreographed by Krzysztof Pastor, The Joffrey Ballet dancers will be accompanied by Sergei Prokofiev’s dramatic 1935 score, performed live by the Dance at The Music Center orchestra, with modern costumes and set design by Tatyana Van Walsum. The Music Center will showcase The Joffrey Ballet during the month of March 2018 with performances presented by Dance at The Music Center of Romeo & Juliet along with performances presented by LA Opera of Orpheus and Eurydice (March 10, 15, 18, 21, 24 and 25).
