Canceled: Paris Opera Ballet

COVID-19 has led to the cancellation of numerous events this spring, including our 2020 Icon Gala and the Chicago debut of Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch. Faced with the postponement of our gala and uncertainty in the months ahead, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our presentation of Paris Opera Ballet in Le Parc next year. 

Paris Opera Ballet’s visit to the Harris Theater in 2012 — its Chicago debut — remains one of the most remarkable moments in our history, and we are committed to bringing the company back soon. We are also working on plans for a special celebration of women in dance and the legacy of our beloved colleague Patricia Barretto in May of next year and look forward to sharing the details of that production with you as they are confirmed.
