1/19-1/29 – International Puppet Festival

Chicago favorites Blair Thomas & Co. is presenting some amazing work and Manual Cinema is sure to please. Also Geumhyng Jeong’s performance looks particularly exciting. So.Much.To.See!

1/21-1/22 – Swan Lake – The State Ballet Theatre of Russia – Harris Theater

2/4 – Chicago Voices – Lyric Opera

A interesting idea and some big names. Tickets are upwards of $49, but there is also programming and master classes surrounding the performance. With these extended engagement opportunities, I hope it can reach more of Chicago.

2/11-2/26 – Merce Cunningham programming – MCA

Free with admission performances in the galleries 2/11 and 2/12. Two stage programs.

2/15-2/26 – Game Changers – Joffrey Ballet – Auditorium Theatre

2/18-2/26 – The Invention of Morel – Chicago Opera Theater – Studebaker Theater

A world premiere! And I’ve been really wanting to see COT in the newly remodeled Studebaker Theater in the Fine Arts Building. Also keeping on my calendar The Perfect American for April at the Harris Theater. It’s Philip Glass’s opera on Walt Disney.
