Sunday Salon Chicago is a literary reading series that takes place six times a year. At every event they feature four writers who read from their novels, short story collections or poetry books. In the last two years over fifty writers have been featured; many from Chicagoland and some from other midwest locations. Sunday Salon is a community for writers and those who love reading
and discovering new work. The casual environment -- the back parlor of the Black Rock Pub, complete with tables, chairs, fireplace and couches -- encourages conversation and networking.
The Joffrey Ballet of Chicago will present the U.S. Premiere of Krzysztof Pastor's Romeo and Juliet, musical score by Serge Prokofiev, performed by The Chicago Philharmonic Orchestra (including Edward Kelsey Moore). In this compelling ballet, Shakespeare’s classic tale is set in Italy against a striking multimedia backdrop which depicts three different political eras of the 20th century. Throughout each time period, the timeless tale of love and loss unfolds to Prokofiev’s formidably dramatic score. Bravura dancing, touching lyricism and epic storytelling unite in this rendering of ill-fated true love. Opening Night for Romeo & Juliet is Wednesday, April 30th with weekend performances May 2nd through May 11th.
