Managed to blag 2 tickets for the ballet last night, one should do this occasionally I feel to see how the other half live. People of all ages were dressed up at the Auditorium Theatre for opening night of the Joffrey Ballet
season. We saw Giselle, a ghost story set in Bavaria and very lovely it was too, and thankfully short, just two acts 50 minutes long with a Heineken in a plastic glass break in between.
The Joffrey Ballet moved from New York to Chicago in 1995 and is one of the countries foremost ballet companies, the beautiful Charlize Theron once being a student.
After years of touring and performing at different locations in Chicago, but predominately The Auditorium
, the Joffrey Ballet will get their own home in January when they take possession of their new permanent home, The Joffrey Tower
on State Street.
