Ballet 5:8 Presents Butterfly: Hope In The Terezin Ghetto

Butterfly originally premiered in 2019 on the eve of the pandemic and is a captivating production that includes music composed in the haunting confines of the Jewish ghetto of Terezin. Julianna Rubio Slager’s choreography infuses the story with raw emotion and echoes the melodies of the score. The ballet also features artwork created by the children of Terezin projected on the backdrop and immerses the audience in the horror and persistent hope of the Holocaust.

Sunday, February 11th | 3:00pm
Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts
915 East 60th Street | Chicago
Tickets: $15 – $55

Butterfly returns to Chicago on February 11th at the Logan Center in Hyde Park. Ellington Nichols, a descendant of Holocaust survivors, will play the role of Helga Weiss.

Also in this bill are two World Premieres: Steve Rook’s Wind and Julianna Rubio Slager’s Counterpart.

Ballet 5:8 is excited to join the Logan Center as a Community Arts Partner for the 2023/24 Season.
