The Joffrey Ballet's Women's Board will host a Swan Lake Luncheon on Wednesday, October 1, at RPM Steak (66 W. Kinzie). This new event, co-chaired by WB members Ellie Forman and Kathleen Henson, will support the launch of the Company's upcoming Swan Lake production premiering on October 15.
The afternoon will include a reception and luncheon as well as a Q & A with Joffrey dancer Victoria Jaiani and Artistic Director Ashley Wheater conducted by dance critic Heidi Weiss. Jaiani will discuss what it takes to be a leading Swan in Swan Lake as well as what it's like being a new, first time mom.
The Joffrey Ballet will premiere this newly envisioned production, choreographed by one of ballet's most acclaimed choreographers Christopher Wheeldon, on October 15. This production represents the first time the Company has ever performed a Swan Lake in its almost 60 year history.
