Description

Ailey’s annual performances are “always a highlight of the Chicago season” (Chicago Sun-Times) and “a Chicago dance tradition, if we ever had one” (Chicago Tribune).

Event Details

The legendary multi-cultural company commemorates their 60th anniversary — and the 50th anniversary performing at the Auditorium Theatre, their Chicago home! In celebration of these exciting milestones, Ailey brings its first ever two-act ballet to the theatre for its Midwest premiere. Lazarus, co-commissioned by the Auditorium and created by renowned hip-hop choreographer Rennie Harris, is inspired by Alvin Ailey’s life and the racial inequities America faced when he founded the company in 1958 and still faces today. Each performance ends with company founder Alvin Ailey’s signature work Revelations, an enduring masterpiece that has been an audience favorite since the company’s inception.
