Lyric Opera of Chicago's 2017/18 Season

Lyric Opera 2017/18 Opera Season

JOIN US FOR A PERFORMANCE EXPERIENCE UNLIKE ANY OTHER.


Opera is a fusion of the best of all of the performing arts — with the power to thrill and move you. Lyric’s 2017/18 season is filled with wonders that you can only experience in the opera house. We open with a new production of Orphée et Eurydice, our first collaboration with The Joffrey Ballet. A passionate melding of music, drama, and dance, this beautiful work will unfold through glorious song and inspiring ballet. It’s sure to be a much-anticipated high point of Chicago’s cultural season.

Prepare for the scale and spectacle that only opera can deliver when a new production of Die Walküre, the second opera in our critically-acclaimed new Ring cycle, takes the stage. Later in the season, Puccini’s Turandot returns for the first time in more than a decade in a grand, new-to-Chicago production.

You'll hear singing that will astound you with its strength, agility, and beauty.

Whether you join us for a journey to the exotic shores of Ceylon in The Pearl Fishers or the decadent court of Mantua in Rigoletto, your time at Lyric is a chance to be transported from your daily routine through the power of music and theater. Please join us. We look forward to sharing the magnificent new season with you.
