Until December 30, 2017

This year sees The Joffrey Ballet's annual holiday ballet return, following its critically acclaimed major reinvention by the iconic Christopher Wheeldon in 2016. The previous Joffrey version ran for many years, becoming the Number One Chicago Christmas tradition, and returned annually to the Auditorium Theatre to wow their die-hard fans since 1987.

Too Hot To Handel

January 13 - 14, 2018

Chicago's own Too Hot to Handel choir brings the music of Handel's famous work The Messiah to life with a modern twist. Re-imagined for the 21st century, the piece's melodies and text remain the same but rhythmic feel, orchestration and harmonic embellishment have been given a contemporary makeover that draws on the energy of gospel and soul.

The building's imposing, bulky facade is offset by the theatre's dazzling interior of gold-leafed arches and wall mosaics. It's currently home to the legendary Joffrey Ballet company and also plays host to hundreds of concerts and comedy shows every year.
